The Dragon Fli | My First Dragon (2009)

I’ve been meaning to upload some old pieces that I still have to show where I began. This is my first dragon! Just like Gymn he was inspired by Donita K Paul’s novel series Dragonspell. Oh, how I wanted those little dragons to be real! 🙁 I had this idea, not even sure how it came to me or what I saw… Of course, we were camping in the mountains and I begged mother to let me drive 20 miles into town to the hardware store. And so off I went! The wire was so stiff, I had no tools or experience… just an idea and my very, very raw and tired fingers afterwards. Frustratingly, I ran out of wire too and HAD to return to the store the next day to buy more and bought the wrong kind (hence the two tones). Such primitive feet and so sloppy (no thanks to the stiffness of the wire). But… he will always have a very special place in my heart. I giggled while taking his picture… he will always have a place on the front of the shelf. 🙂
