Description:   
This is a commissioned piece for Phil Velasquez for a story he wrote in which Circe transforms a mortal woman into a dragon. Sometimes when I do an illustration for someone else's stories, I end up telling my own version of what is going on in the painting. I think this happened to a certain extent in this one. Circe is still doing what the Goddess was doing, admiring the dragoness, but I felt there was more of a tenderness there than a cold inspection. Circe didn't like the guys who showed up on her island, but two things are different about this story; the dragon was a woman before she was changed, and the Goddess in this picture embodies more than just Circe's aspect.
