“DRAGON’S BREATH”

Graphite and lacquer on a Gibson Les Paul electric guitar

“Musicians and artists have much in common. Either sense can inspire the other to call upon the primordial influences of the muse. What makes us human, is only slightly removed from a wilder self, that must harness the mysteries of the universe, to contribute it's part, a song or a painting, to the ever turning realm in which we exist.”
