Animals of Oz #4

My daughter finally did her next installment in her #animalsofoz series of paintings.  I wish I could do this now let alone at nine years old, but I think she nailed it.  Using the descriptions that L. Frank Baum gave in his Oz books, she brought these two dragons to life.  On the back of the canvas she included the quote: “It is the law that evil, unopposed, may accomplish terrible deeds.  The power of good can never be overthrown when opposed to evil.”  This is one of Baum’s many true to life quotes, and I love that she enjoys his works as much as I do.

Her thoughts were that even though these two have a common ancestor, they differ in many ways.  Nothing is born out of evil, only influenced by those we surround ourselves with.
