The heraldic creature for the Court of Tyr Moel was the Unicorn. The arms of the kingdom featured a white Unicorn rampant on a blue background. I could describe this in "official" heraldic terminology but I'm not pretentious enough to do that. Horses were popular among the Court and I depicted two of the young Knights with their steeds. Nancy was one of the youngest members of the Court and was chosen to accompany their symbol in her portrait. I added a blue ribbon, as if it were Nancy and her prizewinning Unicorn.
When Nancy went off to college, she had a major misfortune: most of her possessions were stolen, including the portrait I had made of her with the Unicorn. When I was told this, I immediately made her another portrait, and the new one was better than the old one (which I still have the image of). This is the second portrait. I keep wishing I could find out what happened to these people; they were good friends while our association lasted. I try the almighty Google and what I find are predatory sites which offer information about people, for a fee and years of virus-ridden cyberslavery. No thanks to that. Facebook is no better at finding them; so I am left to wonder.
Nancy and unicorn is ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 5 1/2", summer 1981.
