Dragons converge at the Library

Ruidoso artist, Carla Morrow, a.k.a. the Dragon Lady., is the current artist displaying prints of her paintings at the library.  She has provided coloring sheets for the kids, too.   (Coloring pages located on the bookshelf below the prints on the wall.)   Prints of her paintings are available for purchase at her website: www.dragonladyart.com   The prints will be on display through June 30th.

Carla explains her magical attraction to dragons.  "Dragons hold a unique position in my heart.   They are one of the few truly universal icons and images for all mankind.  Dragons existed in every culture as far back as I could find in my research.  Religion, philosophy, myth and even history all carried allusions of the dragon. 
"Even today, the dragon still has a firm grip on our waking and sleeping minds.  Through the written word, games movies and advertisements, dragons fly through our imaginations and sing in our hearts."


Baby dragons or young Dragonlings started finding their way out of the Fairyrelm through Carls's paintings in 2013.  She calls this group  Little Wings Dragons™.  Her future project involves crowd funding for a dragonling plush and coloring books.
