I was affected by this and had to share a few thoughts with you :-)    .... For me, this is a powerful scene that depicts a multitude of interpretations from psychological to mystical.  The ravages of mankind's violence upon itself, time and again inflicting war and destruction upon what once was.  The girl symbolizing the undying sense of innocence, compassion and a powerful connection to the natural realm that is ever present. The water dragon (water symbolizing source of life) is part of that long lost realm, that innocence that war destroys.  Yet it still lives within the hearts of those who know that nothing truly dies, the bond never truly breaks.  (On another level, as a child of the 70's, I see the Vietnam war and how one innocent child might reach deep inside of her mind for that "safe place" to hide, be saved, to survive and exist away from the horrifying destruction of life around her.)  

Artistically, it is painted very nicely. I like the vivid colors that span across your canvas in a rainbow-like pattern.  The dragon is wonderful.  The eyes are my favorite part.  They are compassionate, gentle and focuses on the girl, not on the chaos from which she came out of...

Question: She seems to be holding something in her left hand. What is it? <3

sorry for the late reply, your comment was so lovely that I wanted to wait until I have enough time (:

So first thank you for sharing your thoughts, which are very interesting. I really like your interpretations, especially the innocence of nature that's destroyed through war. Wahh I like everything. I can't tell you how awesome it was to read your comment! Exactly my thoughts, though I would never be able to depict them as well as you did. So again thank you so much for this most lovely comment! :heart:

Oh, she's holding a teddy bear in her hand :)
