The Alphabet Paintings: G

I'm back to my alphabet paintings.. and this one is of a piece that lives in my home and called George.. he's a Gryphon.  (also known as a Griffin)
I've painted him on top of a castle wall and in the open air...

  5. I look forward to showing this to Seth. He loves any mythical creatures. We were going to do a unit study on them sometime...I guess I still need to do that with him!

    Nice job!
