My apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Please feel free to contact me if you would like me to place an item aside for you to be sent at a later date.

Sea Dragon Mounted Pencil Drawing with Accompanying Poem

Sea Dragon Mounted Pencil Drawing with Accompanying Poem
Love this


A sinuous sea dragon in Mediterranean shades of blue and green with the odd glint of gold here and there. Inspired by my love of dragons, the Mediterranean and illuminated manuscripts, she slipped onto the paper in an 'S' shape, so would be particularly suitable for someone with that initial.

Water soluble pencil on paper with cream mount - size (including mount) 354 mm high by 278 mm wide.

Please note that, as this is drawn with water soluble pencils, it should not be allowed to come into contact with water or steam, and should be hung out of direct sunlight to avoid fading.


The picture came first, her poem came later...

Sea Dragon

In the Mediterranean
she skims the surf
on silken, sea-foam wings;
sunlight skittering
across her iridescent scales.

Amidst the archipelagos
of the Pacific
she dreams of shells,
ships with spider spun rigging
and the songs of albatross.

In the Arctic she follows
shimmering ribbons of Borealis
far beneath the sculptured ice
to the deep, dark depths
where the white whales dance.

In slow spirals
she searches the swirling,
shifting forests of the Sargasso
seeking her soulmate.

Her tears are sea-glass.
