My Favorite Dragon for Theme Day

"Bedtime for Dragon" created in felt by Kathy Batdorf
Barbara Radisavljevic, Paso Robles, USA
The theme for the September theme day is Curiosities. I chose a piece of art I saw in an exhibit years ago that has always been one of my favorites. This soft sculpture dragon in felt was created by Kathy Batdorf, who titled it "Bedtime for Dragon." She does amazing things with her needle. This won third place in the "Through the Looking Glass" exhibit in December, 2010, sponsored by the Paso Robles Art Association.

To get an idea of the detail of this work, I've included a close-up of the caterpillar reading the bedtime story to the dragon.  You can enlarge either photo by clicking on it. The Paso Robles Art Association currently has monthly shows at Studios on the Park in Paso Robles
