The Dragon of Awakening Enlightenment - Cast Paper


Shipping to United States: Free

The Dragon of Awakening Enlightenment
This is my favorite dragon. It is the dragon that pops in when, in our quest for enlightenment, we become aware of our progress, which ironically sets back our progress.

The Dragon is painted to match the mats but if you want a certain color dragon let us know in the order comments
This piece also always has extra mats. I will pick a complementary 3rd color for the middle mat or you may specify one.

The frame dimensions are 16" x 32" and 1" deep.

Paper Casting
Paper casting is to me the perfect medium. It allows me use almost every skill set. A typical piece begins as a drawing or two. Then I sculpt it in wax. This is a long refining process and often the image sculpted is far different that the drawing. Then I build a dam around the wax and pour a rubber mold directly off the surface. A casting is made by pressing wet cotton pulp into the mold and extracting the water. Then I finish the surface.
While every piece that emerges from the mold is about the same, no two are really painted the same. Maybe I would if I could, but the painting process is always in flux. I am always experimenting with ways of mixing colors or washes and hard edge or new pigments. I send about 75% of my time with the painted finishes.

Absolutely GORGEOUS, perfect in my living room...thank you

This fabulous piece of art was a gift from my husband. I LOVE IT!!! The colors, the detail... it's like having a real dragon in motion going across my wall. I've had several compliments on the picture. It's a beautiful piece of fantasy art showcased by the beautiful mat and frame. My husband chose well, Kevin Dyer-awesome talent!
