This is my third pastel 'work' -- the second gryphon. It is a disembodied gryphon head, surreally blending in with the 'dawn'; the sides of the gryphon represent different phases of it. The inspiration for this was my Aunt. She asked me to draw her a gryphon for Christmas last year, and I never did, so I thought I'd give it a try for this year. It isn't the best, but it's interesting, and was very fun to draw. I like pastels. These were oil, by the way, as opposed to chalk in the other gryphon. It is on a canvas board (about 4' x 6'). Finished on the 3rd of December, 2003.
