This listing is for a print of my coloured pencil, watercolor, and ink artwork "Maternal." I created this image as a slight twist on the traditional treasure-hoarding, disaster-wreaking, fire-breathing dragon. My misunderstood monster is just a mother trying to protect her soon to hatch egg! My ruby red dragon hides in her cave, clutching her glowing golden egg, while in the distance a village lays in ruins under night sky with a giant full moon. This reproduction would make a great gift for mothers or fantasy fans!

This signed, limited edition (run of 100) digital reproduction is giclee quality, printed with ChromaLife 100 ink on art paper. The image is 7 x 10.5 inches with a white border making it sized perfectly for a standard 11 x 14 inch frame. Reproduction will be shipped flat in a plastic sleeve and protective packaging.

If you like this dragon, you might like another one of my prints with dragons as the subject:
