Square Dragon

I love calendars, I consider them artwork for my walls that changes monthly. I have one in the kitchen, three in the guest bathroom, one in the master bedroom and two in my computer room. I also have two at my shop - dragons by Ciruelo and a mini calendar of gargoyles. This picture of the September dragon by Ciruelo was the perfect choice for square. I love his dragons and even if they were considered evil, what beauties they were.

Ciruelo Dragon Calendar - September 2013


Calendars truly can be works of art. That's a magnificent dragon.
He is a beauty. Morgoth may have made the dragons, but even though they were the worst of an evil Vala's warped mind, I still love them so much!

I have a lot of fun choosing my calendars each year. I have a few constants, but I always try to have a few unusual new ones among them too.

Gorgeous!I love dragons too.I like to have calendars printed of my photos.I also love cat ones, art ones and favourite films.

Dragons make me quite happy (which is lucky since I have them all around my house).

- Erulisse (one L)
That is really pretty. Nice answer to the prompt, too.
Thank you. I adore his dragons :-)

- Erulisse (one L)
Yes, that is a magnificant dragon! Dragons are wonderful, even the evol ones. :P
Dragons are totally marvelous!

- Erulisse (one L)
Very impressive dragon! And terrific idea for the prompt. I'm struggling with this one and almost desperate enough to simply post a photo of my floor tile. :/

I too enjoy a lot of calendars... I have ones for The Hobbit and LOTR that I rotate back and forth depending on how well I like the artwork (sorry, but I don't want Gollum or a Nazgûl peering down at me for a month!!), another one entirely of an LOTR fan artist's work (no need to skip months in that one as it's all Aragorn), and in my kitchen, I always hang the annual Secret Gardens calendar.
I was having problems with this also, since I don't have a lot around me that is actually square. But then I had to check something on the calendar and the dragon winked at me - LOL.

I imagine we'll be going through some geometric shapes for this challenge and I have no idea what I'll do for some of them.

Take your floor tile - and if they are patterned, choose four of them to give you a larger, patterned square to present. It will be pretty! If they are plain, maybe sprinkle something across the tile? Rose petals, salt, drops of water?

I suppose the rolling bunnies of shed cat hair could provide a certain focal point... *g*
"- Erulisse (one L)"

Haha, for some reason this reminds me of Col Jack O'Neill, with 2 L's :D
I'm unfamiliar with Col Jack O-Neill, but my (one L) designation came about when I joined a writers board whose members said that they had already had an Erulisse as a member but that she spelled her name slightly differently - with 2 ells instead of my one. So I began the designation of (one L) and still have some friends from those days who call me 1L instead of Erulisse.

Richard Dean Anderson (of MacGyver fame) plays Col O'Neill in Stargate SG1. I forget that a lot of people here are probably from Europe and haven't heard of him although some have :) There's an episode where he makes sure that someone knows there are 2 L's in his name, hence the reason that it made me think of that.

Ah! Well, I'm from the US, but have never been a Stargate fan (except for the movie which I loved because of the Egyptian characterizations). My DH has watched most of it, but I watched very few and I'm totally horrible with actor's names and characters :-) Thanks for telling me about it :-)

- Erulisse (one L)
In that movie another actor played O'Neill and they spelt it with one "l" and he played it very differently. RDA made O'Neill a whole different character.

Let me find the whole quote instead of me typing it all out.

"It's 'O'Neill', with two L's. There's another Col. O'Neil with only one L, and he has no sense of humor at all."
Ah - LOL. Love the quote. I have seen a few episodes of SG1, but don't really remember a lot about it :-(

- Erulisse (one L)
It helps that he's kinda easy on the eyes too.... did I say that??? ;)
Very nice dragon:)
Thank you so much!

Evil and beautiful often go hand in hand in a fascinating way, doesn't it? A great choice for this prompt!

I envy you the wall space to hang so many calendars - I'm having two wall calendars this year and they two hang in the bathroom already... *g* Downsides of a very open-plan house with many windows, bookshelves and roof slopes upstairs.
I've been a dragon fan for a very long time and have an extensive collection of them - some in every room of my house.

My DH and I adore art so I'm not sure I could handle a place with non-stop windows. I like my privacy - draperies and shades are my friend, and my walls are full of tapestries and framed art (as well as my calendars). But they aren't just on the walls, they also adorn my closet doors.

- Erulisse (one L)
I wouldn't want wall-to-wall windows either, and we have blinds and draperies before all necessary. There is wall space not taken up by bookshelves, but that is already in high demand with sometimes changing pictures, or with intentional free space to give pictures more room. We have some Carl Larsson prints over the sofa and at the only dining room wall, and several pieces of original art as well as many posters I can't live without (with more living in tubes, sadly, as well as my two beloved Turner prints - we used to have very ugly white doors we used for poster spaces, but our current doors are solid wood country style I don't want to hang. The original art is nothing special or precious, but very dear to me/us - three fanarts (with two more to come), two pencil drawings of two of our cats, and the odd piece by the WW and myself. And most of the small spaces are used for small things, fotos and such. I could squeeze in more, I suppose, but I need a certain space for most visual work to not get overwhelmed. I can't say how glad I am for digital photography, so all my pics can be watched as a screensaver or background and doesn't need to be hung.
