Please enjoy my newest fantasy themed artwork Unicorn Sighting.
As you hike through the forest along a lazy river that winds it’s way between the trees, a mist rises. It becomes difficult to see too far and the rays of the sun play tricks as they break through the canopy of leaves. From the other side of the river you hear a sound. Scanning the far shore of the river, you see an animal emerge from the fog. At first, you think it’s a white horse, but this is a strange place to see a horse without a rider. The you notice the horn on its head! What you see is the legendary creature, the unicorn. What should be myth and fantasy now appears before you. It looks at you, its mane and tail drifting in the breeze. A moment later, it turns and gallops away into the mist. It’s a scene you won’t soon forget.
This is my second work to feature a unicorn and fits in both my fantasy and equestrian themed art collections. It was inspired by my hikes along similar rivers throughout the Southeastern U.S. where rivers often wind their ways through dense forests.
In the darkest part of the forest, a creepy green man with pointy ears and an oddly inhuman face reclines in a hammock that appears to be made from flesh. He is the fruit vendor in the Goblin Market. Around him are barrels and buckets full of his strange stock. Behind him a little blue dragon stands watch for shoplifters.
This is a work I had actually made made years before I published it. I started it, but then forgot about until I one day found it while trying to clean up my hard drive. It’s based on the poem “The Goblin Market” by Christina Rossetti. It’s about two sisters and what befalls them when one of them buys fruit from the Goblin market. The author apparently intended it for children, but the imagery in it can be construed as very adult.
A great red dragon with massive wings perches a top a rocky outcropping. Black smoke drifts from it the nostrils of its horny head as it gazes far and wide over the land. Clouds fill the skies overhead and snow capped mountains like the horizon. Dry yellow grass grows upon the hill where the dragon has landed.
