While I was painting...

 ... I tried to keep you entertained with other things until this would be finished. Gouache painting, approx. letter format. The sad story of the end of the Tatzelwurms ancestor. George stabbed him to death and became a hero. This scene is painted from the Tatzelwormic view which explains the color of the aura. No Tatzelwurm ever was named George which is easy to understand.

Do you find yourself sometimes involved in your artwork, thinking of blog reactions in advance? Does it influence/inspire/disturb your working progress? I have a serious problem with rising vanity thru blogging, but addicts can't just stop.

You let the Taztelwurm die? I don't believe you - you have to wake him up - can you do that????

Oh, by the way: very beautiful painting!!!

Oh, this is not today's Tatzelwurm, but his ancestor!

I'm usually relieved when I think I'm finally doing something that is blog-able...or that I've finally remembered my blog in time to take photos of the process. I am absolutely awed by your art. I read your post several times to confirm that you had actually painted this. What talent!

i think we cannot help bit be influenced by interaction and also praise. To me it is the far reach it has that i enjoy. and at this point it has also become a responsibility to persist. Still I have work that I never show. I am sure has been influenced by interactions in any case. If it is current work.

Oh, sorry, I misunderstood! Thank god, he is alive!!!! I was worried you won't paint more Taztels!

I actually am not influenced by the meaning of others about what I create... I mostly just do what I want to do. But I am lucky, usually my stuff is liked, and of course I cherish positive feedback like everyone.

Dear Yael, such a step as to kill the hero requires more cruelty than I am able to act out.

I am really touched by the story of the poor Tatzelworm.
I have since long planned to make a wallpainting at our old country house of the St George & dragon story. With old swedish folklore paintings as inspiration. Now I get second thaughts about that. Maybe I will follow your line and take a look at it from the dragons point of view.
