After a day of exploring the breathtaking landscapes of Lake Tahoe, visitors can spend a day taking in the glorious art on display at the Marcus Ashley Gallery. The gallery is home to Michael Parkes art, an awe-inspiring collection of magic realism art. The artist relies on purposeful brushwork, surreal tones, and historic painting techniques to animate the subjects of his work.

Parkes often sketches his fantastical subjects on paper before turning them into supporting or main elements in his work. In Dragon Dragon, the artist captures a classic stout creature that first appeared in his painting, Ex Libris. Using varying intensities of grey, Parkes subtly highlights his subject’s form, deftly creating the illusion of light to amplify the dragon’s strong yet gentle features.

In this drawing, the dragon has his arms wrapped around his shoulders as he tries to contain his excitement. A pretty dragonfly lingers on his snout as its wings beat to the rhythm of the dragon’s heartbeat. Unlike legendary ferocious dragons that often occupy lore imagery, the artist’s version of the creature is endearing.

Dragon Dragon is part of Parkes’s Dragon Collection drawings that focus on a fan-favorite character.
