“Charming”

This is my latest painting, titled Charming. Not only does it have dimensional texture and real fresh-water pearls embedded in the surface, but the dragon’s arm is hinged at the elbow and shoulder and the girls arm pivots at the shoulder. Controlled by a piece of fishing-line that runs between the front and back panel, the girl and dragon’s arms move simultaneously when the viewer pulls a tassel that hangs from the bottom of the painting (not in picture) When released, everything is pulled back into position by a counterweight stone, which also hangs from the bottom of the painting.
