"The Alchemist's Skeptical Daughter"

Available this week as part of the CAC's May art auction, "Alchemy"...

The Alchemists Skeptical Daughter is a recent personal work in watercolor and gouache, a portrait of a girl and her dragon who have seen a lot of attempts to turn lead into gold and are pretty sure that they won't see it done today.

Daughter evolved out of a pencil sketch of a lovely young woman on Sktchy, then became a watercolor study which I quite liked but couldn't find a home for.  Finally I just played with the piece, looking for the story behind the expression that was already there, until, in her final form, the alchemist's daughter looked back at me.

The Changeling Artist Collective's May art auction,"Alchemy,"  runs through Noon, Friday, May 25, on Facebook.
