I have been working on a slew of Commissioned Paintings this Summer, as well as some just for Fun.
Here is the recently completed Chinese Birthday/New Years Dragon pART 2.3:
Thirteen and a half years ago, I travelled for the first time to the Island of Jamaica, with Snake Oil Medicine Show and I painted the original (then titled) New Year’s Dragon,
even though it was the year of the Monkey. The next year We returned and I was asked to make a T-Shirt design for the Chinese New Year Party. Thus, the second version:
So as You can see above the 2.3 version is clearly inspired, and yet somewhat different than the first two.
I was asked in January to make a next Dragon and I am quite happy with how this one came out, thirteen years later.
