The Wizard of Tyr Moel

The imaginary Court of Tyr Moel wasn't all girls. They had as many signors as damsels, and I did their portraits too. This one was the Court Wizard, in his robes of Tyr Moel's heraldic blue, holding his staff and his copy of the arcane book, the "Necronomicon." Even back then, this portrait reminded me of a wizard at his high school graduation, holding his yearbook. Many of the Court were indeed just past high school age, and in fact the Court was disbanded as the members went off to college and careers.

"Wizard of Tyr Moel" was watercolor on Fabriano paper, 3 1/2" x 5 1/2", spring 1979.
