Face to Face/Forever Never

Eolas saw everything in slow motion-his eyes, his mind, his heart memorizing every molecule of existence in the moments that followed. He watched the head of the great She-Creature as it turned away from Naofa and trained its gaze on his treasure chest. Continue reading Face to Face/Forever Never

No Rest for the Keepers/Forever Never

Forever Never/The Dawn of Illusion by Cheryl Pennington copyright As the circle of friends in the Land of Laoch rest peacefully,  the Keepers of Domhan also find sleep.  But one will not sleep easy; for the vein of dark possibility pumps its poison into the minds of the innocent at every turn….

I have had a fascination with dragon lore for most of my life and have, at different times, attempted to create renditions.  In light of my recent novel and a renewed interest in these mystical creatures, I wanted to post these older art pieces before I try my hand at a new piece.  The one above was done about ten years ago, during a time of Spiritual awakening and growth. I find the face a bit too “friendly” for what I have in my with my current project. But it was an attempt at an Atlantis reference, so a peaceful … Continue reading Dragons in my Mind
