Deryni Knight

Katherine Kurtz' books are full of heroic blonde people. That's just the way she is. King Kelson is heroic and has black hair, so it's not everyone. But there is a whole family of blondness in the Camber books, that is, Camber and his kin. This is a portrait of Joram, Camber's knightly son. Joram is a military priest in the Order of St. Michael, not to be confused with my own religious order as I've said. Joram gets to do a lot of political intrigue but not much swashbuckling. This was a commission from a Deryni fan, a century ago in 1985. Painting is acrylic on illustration board, 8" x 11", done in July 1985.

I love the chainmale and other details but I am not thrilled with his face and hair so much. Overall nice picture.
