Wizards Dragons Dogs Chickens and Such

I've been drawing and painting, inking, and scheming new ideas and concepts.  The easiest way for me to do this is just draw, and see where my pencil leads me.  I've been considering making Needlepoint canvases out of all the dogs I've painted, but I don't know if there is a desire or need for dog portraits out there.  I love drawing Wizards and Fairies, Dragons and sailing ships, but then I do not know if there is any desire to stitch that subject matter.  Sooooooooo, I've been painting and drawing what I love, and hopefully I will get some feedback from someone to give me a clue if they should be translated into Needlepoint Canvases.
Here is what I've been working on lately:
The Wizard is riding his Friesian Stallion to wonderful adventures as shown in the border.  Everyone should have the opportunity to ride a beautiful horse, and take an adventure away from the hum drum of normal life.
Wizard Defender of Dragons, and all the weak, vulnerable, and helpless.  We all should have a Wizard in our life.
The Wonderful Wizard Marion Skydancer defender of the Innocent!  Marion Skydancer is a friend, fellow artist, photograper, and the model for all of my Wizards.  I love to draw his beard, long flowing white hair, and his rugged but dear countenance.  He can be seen at Deviant Art if you follow this link:

Wizard Defender of the Forest with his beautiful walking stick, and magical sword.  

Caped Wizard, ready to depart and take up his journey and quest.

Marion Skydancer, beloved Wizard A delicate balance needed to convey his loving spirit and fierce beauty.
These are my drawing of the Wizard, and I have more in the works.  Dog portraits I'v done aplenty, and boldly colored rooster, and softly colored hens are also in abundance.  Perhaps, tomorrow or later to day I will upload some more of my latest endeavors.  In this poor economy I do hope you will write when I get work, and send your thoughts to bolster my psyche.  Thank you, and I hope everyone out there has a productive and lucrative day.
