The Swordsman of Tyr Moel

The young men of Tyr Moel's imaginary court enjoyed playing the roles of swashbucklers and bladesmen. I provided them with their weaponry, even if it was only in a miniature portrait. I also gave them magic crystals to wear in a pouch around their neck or as the fasteners to their cloaks. I wonder where these guys are now, whether they have sunk back into the world of mundanity and gotten dumpy and old.

Richard's portrait, like all the others, is ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 5 1/2", spring 1979.
