Saint George and the Dragon


Saint George and the Dragon.  Watercolor and 23.5K gold leaf on D’Arches paper.  The Latin translation is: “Here there be dragons”.

Funny story.  I finished this painting on Friday and was walking home after the gym with clothes under one arm and groceries in one hand and this painting in a clear plastic bag in the other hand.  I got to the school near my house when I realized that the painting was missing!  It had fallen out of the bag on the way home.  I ran back to the studio asking people, “have you seen a painting”?  No one had seen anything.  I found it face down in the dirt by the duck pond and it was immaculately clean.  A miracle maybe?
