Protect Me by windfalcon Protect Me by windfalcon
Things have been a bit difficult lately. I started this painting after having a really, really upsetting day, and from the moment I started drawing to the second paint hit paper, it became such wonderful therapy - the type that can only come from art. This painting actually took a lot longer than usual, as I didn't want it to 'end,' but eventually it was complete, and now here it is.

The title comes from a desire I had on that day to just be protected. I just wanted to be curled up in a pair of strong wings and shielded from all the negativity and fear. I hope if any of you are feeling afraid or in pain, that this painting will give a bit of light and hope to you.


Watercolor and colored pencil on illustration board, 7.75 X 10.5 inches

I used a little colored pencil to pop some of the colors and some of the details in the leaves, mostly.

I love your piece so much! At times, I do wish I could be shielded from the evils of the world. deepbluejupiter, I took it upon myself to write a little story to this piece. I hope you like it! 

The little gryphon awoke from her slumber, adrenaline rushing through her small body, her heart beating fast in her chest. She recalled the nightmare she had just experienced, and claws of fear threatened to tear at her once again. A light brush of feathers against her hide caused to her to leap away, but the sight of her mother’s face calmed her. “Come, my little one.” The gryphon whispered soothingly, enfolding her baby in her vast wings. “I will protect you.”
