Commissioned in 2011, this image was designed to be cover art for a children’s fantasy novel.

The work is painted with oils, on a cotton canvas, measuring 20″x24″. I have included some detail shots of the painting. Commissioned by author Matthew Irvin, and completed in 2012. Aschwood Academy marks a joint writing partnership between Matthew Irvin and Brandon Gaus, and I had the honor and privilege of reading a beta version of the novel. I’m excited to see what is next from these guys!
