A beloved childhood dragon comes to life

Dragons are a particular favorite of mine and have become quite popular in recent years. Any fan of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones will tell you that this mythical creature did indeed exist. But long before these rather violent dragons became the norm there was a little dragon named Puff that captivated me as a child. I drove my parents crazy insisting they play the song Puff the Magic Dragon by Peter, Paul and Mary for me endlessly. It is a nostalgic song about the end of childhood and not about an actual dragon at all but as I child I believed in Puff absolutely and it broke my heart that he had to leave at the end. So this portrait is my homage to that dragon that touched me, and probably many others, so deeply.
