This is one of the paintings I did for the book The People of Pern, published by Donning in 1988. Anne McCaffrey wrote character descriptions of everyone who had appeared in her books about the world of Pern, and I painted pictures and drew drawings to go with them, based on Anne's descriptions. The original is an oil painting on masonite.
Menolly, musically gifted daughter of the Holders of Half-Circle Sea Hold, has run away from her oppressive parents, and is living holdless on the coast. For company, she has nine fire lizards she has accidentally impressed, and her songs. In this image, she is perched on a rock in the surf, surrounded by happy lizards, immersed in the harmonies she's playing on the pipes that she made. Hopefully, she'll notice at some point that the tide is coming in!
This print is a companion piece to Sebell, since in the books they eventually marry.
This image is now available from my Zazzle store. Prints from Zazzle aren't signed, but you can choose any size you want, printed on any of the various Zazzle papers (from cardstock to canvas.) The default size is 17x22 inches, the same size as the original painting; but you can have it printed any size you want.
Prints from Zazzle come without a frame or mat, but you can have them framed if you want to.
(If you would like it on something else Zazzle offers, let me know.)
So, go to the Menolly print in the Zazzle store if you'd like to have this image on something!
