Every picture is inspired by something and this one that I've have just completed, perhaps surprising, was inspired by a dog. How do you explain to a dog what is happening and that this is to be their new home. All one can do is treat them kindly and lead them gently into a new and better life. This is the sentiment behind this artwork. The girl leads the dragon, and despite his obvious strength he looks tentatively over his shoulder, but she is calm and kind and her magic lights their way.
