Friends forever by Ironshod Friends forever by Ironshod
Once a dragon becomes your friend that friendship lasts forever...

I really enjoyed painting this subject and putting a lot dragon designs into the image. Can you spot them all?

Thanks to `Elandria whose loverly photographs gave me the idea for the painting. Thanks also to my dog Obi who posed as the dragon ;)

Every Celtic princess deserves her own dragon. You really captured the tenderness and love that these two share. It really reminds me of how my cats and I are together. So much love and devotion.

Oooh gorgeous <3 I agree, I think dragons are one of those creatures who, once you bond with them, that bond never breaks :nod: I love how the dragon is just sitting in her lap letting her pet him xD

*grins*

I picked up a print on tile of this piece in X-Store at the Avalon Mall in St. John's, NL, Canada. It's a lovely piece, and I had just pointed it out to my friend, saying that I *knew* who had done that! And I was right! I was also right that it was already in my favourites....

Again (I think) it's a gorgeous piece, and I really love it.

I'm guessing in the faerie kingdom, they have dragons instead of cats?

Of course, cats probably wouldn't last very long around there either! :)

The throne, her tiara, her necklack and her tatoos. I'll bet the ring on her toe has a dragon on it, too. Those things are everywhere 0_o
Very touching and sweet. Thank you for sharing it with us :)
