Allow yourself to believe in magic
~ Dragons and Fantasy ~
Any of these that are out of stock can be created again. No two will be exactly alike as that is the way of hand made creations, but they can be very similar. If you want something different, we
can do that too!
This is SOOOOO hard to get a good photograph of. There are 12 clear glossy enamel finish coats and getting beyond that is hard. The whole thing appears to be underwater, which is exactly what I intended, but . . . it makes photography somewhat difficult! This guy is beautiful. Phoenix in the Heavens 7" x 9.5" puzzled work of art. He changes as you move around him.
I chose to use a photograph I made several years ago of an incredibly beautiful November sunset. I painted a rising Phoenix into the photo. I have a method I use to "lift" the photo from the
paper and then adhere it to my boards. The wood grain shows through in places, which I love. This is a fixed in place, puzzled work of art, measuring 7" x 9.5". This has at least 8 top coats of
a multi media work of art. Photographs, drawings, painting, and wood have all been used in the creation of Draco. He is a "fixed in place" work of art. I used metallic paints and he has 8 top coats of clear enamel. He shimmers and shines! His frame will be black. Over 8 hours in the making. I seemed to lose all track of time when I was working on him. He is magnificent! Completed size is 7.5" x 9.5".
13"x11.5" 160 pieces
Hand carved and painted. Each piece individually sanded.
He just called to me and so, here he is! The frame is lined with the colors of the Dragon. I had such fun creating him. Gift him to a friend, a lover or to yourself! I, for one, collect dragons!
Do you? Allow him to guide your dreams to fantastic places and dare to go where no man/woman has gone before!
A piece of fantasy right here in the Southwest, up in the high mountain desert. Done in metallic paints he shines and shimmies. A fixed in place puzzled work of art. Display him wherever he will
be seen and enjoyed.
A 7.5" x 9" fixed in place work of art. The photography is mine, a sunset in northern New Mexico. I painted in a tribal art phoenix. This has at least 8 top coats of clear acrylic. Gives an amazing depth to the art. He is not totally set in on one plane which lends more to the 3D illusion. Beautiful!
13" x 11.5" 115 pieces
The age old battle between good and evil. The balance must be kept. The surrounding water brings light from the Spiritual Realm to aid in maintaining the equilibrium. I love the way this catches and reflects the light into a room ~ perhaps it will help you restore and keep balance in your life or shed a little light? Hand carved, burned and painted. Almost 35 hours to create.
Approximately 11" square
I had such a good time with this one. I smile every time I look at him. These are the favored mode of transportation in the Fairy kingdom. I am sure you have all seen dragon flies and thought you were seeing an insect. Next time, look more closely. You will usually see them in gardens, darting in and out among the flowers. They have a delightful sense of humor and when they are not transporting fairies from one place to the next, they love to play on the air currents, so you might witness them drifting along. Watch for them, they bring good luck to those who are fortunate enough to see them. They are called Fairy Dragons.
I happened to be near Pompeii when Mount Vesuvius blew. It was an incredible, awesome sight. I was totally amazed to see this
phoenix arising from the ashes of the city. He came right out of the flames! He was ablaze but oh so beautiful and inspiring. Majesty reigns. Let him help you overcome the obstacles in
Carved and painted, over 40 hours in the making. A dramatic display piece. Has a lined frame - not shown in photos.
I was fortunate enough to capture a photograph of this guy last year. I was mountain climbing on Magic Mountain and reached the peak just as the sun rose and set the sky on fire. He was there, watching me. I was thrilled and, always having my camera at the ready, I snapped off a couple of shots before he flew away to do dragon things. I carved this puzzle based on one of those photos!
The following Dragons are not in stock at the moment. They have been sold, but we can make more, should you want them. I have not put prices with them nor dimensions as they vary from puzzle to
puzzle depending on the amount of detail and the number of pieces. Each comes with magical qualities that, should you be inclined, will help you in your daily life.
