Oil Pastel/Ink on Artist Board 1978 24-1/8”H x 15-1/4”W 16-3/4”H x 7-7/8”W
From Michael Babcock: “Susan’s early work was filled with mythological creatures, dragons, unicorns, faeries and mermaids. Susan saw dragons as benevolent beings. It was the birth of her son Eric that inspired her use of these images in her art. This from an interview:

What was it that changed in you when Eric was born?

“My sense is that it freed, it somehow freed the child in me, it freed me and it gave me permission to enjoy fantasy, you know, like fairytales and things that I had enjoyed as a child. I think in retelling them to Eric it opened up . . . I think I just enjoyed the whole process of storytelling, both reading and telling stories to him and remembering, I imagine remembering my own enjoyment of stories. So I think what happened is, my sense is that having a child allowed me to give myself permission  to do unicorns and dragons”. 

The breath of the dragon forms snowflakes in the cool night air and is reminiscent of the breath of the Polar Bear in her final work, “Playing With the North Wind”.
