Sculpture: Dragon
1995?: Papier Mache and Acrylic;

The dragon is like the falcon, strong and soaring. It represents strength, honor, freedom, and a rather fierce, fighting spirit. In making this piece, I wanted to bring out the sinuous qualities, as though we are seeing a living creature. I rather like it.

This piece won first place in the San Mateo County Fair, something that pleased me quite a bit. It also worried me, because I didn't know if I could do it again. To have qualities that people can appreciate, admire, and respect, a work of art must express the spirit of its creator. And that takes inspiration, work, and a good understanding of the craft. I think I finally have achieved the third. Now, I'm ready for some inspiration. Music, anyone?
