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.

I do hope that you are feeling better. I understand how art can be a great way to calm negative emotions. Excellent work with this!
Seriously lovely picture~
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.”
so lovely detailed feather!
and so decorative style,
just so pity about the tail - it doesn't deserve to be cut off!
