St. George and the White Dragon
This painting headed off to a new home last week. And in preparation for upcoming art classes, I share an extensive posting on MuddyColors Blog regarding its creation and use of photographic reference in the process.

St. George and the White Dragon
24" x 30" Oil on Panel
New painting begun at the live demonstration, Art Out Loud 10, at the Society of illustrators in New York last month and finished up in the studio. Off to its new owner in a couple of weeks after the varnish dries! A revisit of the character Kvothe from Patrick Rothfuss' brilliant novel The Name of the Wind.

I love your work! I have your Middle-Earth book sitting on my shelf. I just happened to stumble across one of your pieces here and I thought it looked familiar. I just love the emotion behind every piece. They feel like renaissance paintings. Such wonderful work.

Hi DonatoArts. My name is Jeani Rector, and I am the editor of the established, award-winning ezine The Horror Zine. We are not just about horror; we are mystery, surreal, suspense, fantasy, sci-fi and "Twilight Zone."

I cruised your gallery and am impressed. I particularly like Desires. I would like to display some of your art in our ezine. Please feel free to check our Art Page out for yourself at

There is no charge, and as you can see from the other artists we have displayed on our Art Page, you would get your own page and complete credit for your work.

If you are interested, please email me at and I look forward to hearing from you.
