Exclamation Third Pern Portrait for the Pern Encyclopedia

Despite all the hubbub and work for Eurocon (and attendants know what I mean) resident artists Linda Eicher (aka Master Maelin) still managed to finish her third portrait for the Pern Encyclopedia. I'm sure you agree with me that this will be a stunning series to behold.

After last portrait's subject being colony leader Admiral Paul Benden, it'll come as no surprise to you that this next portrait displays

Emily Boll


Shown here is only part of the portrait painting, which also shows a very detailed scene in the Meteorology Tower at Landing with Emily at work, looking out over the landing grid.

Wow, that's really a very nice drawing!

For some reason I feel drawn to the corner. There's a nice depth to it.

I'm rereading Dragonsdawn for the Quest, so I'll wait with reading the entry in the encyclopedia, so I won't get any "spoilers".

Thank you everyone...I am truly very happy that you have enjoyed my depiction of Emily. I so much enjoy doing these, and with this one... I had such fun putting in all the little details of the Met tower just please don't ask me what all that technical stuff is...

I do want to thank...
Cheryl, for that very enjoyable afternoon spent, trying to figureout what a Pern Sled might look like...

Hans, for the lovely suggestion to place Pierre de Courci in a frame on the desk...so as to make some mention of his place in Emily's life....

Steven, for making his fantastic globe of Pern, thats why I decided to put one on the Screen on the desk in this.... Surprise!!!

Wow. I just found this. What everyone else said. Yet another fantastic portrait. Master Maelin, with that talent of yours you should be doing cover art. Your work should be in bookstores all over the world.

And thank you for honouring me by including the globe of Pern.

Steven thank you so much for that lovely compliment ...but if I was working on other writers book covers I would have to do what someone else(a publisher) wanted me to do and create what they wanted me to do. This way I can create/draw/paint what I love so very much....the characters of Anne McCaffrey's Pern stories.

A lovely portrait once again. It would be lovely to have a bound Pern Encyclopedia with your pictures. I thought Robin Wood's pics were good, and they are. But yours are brilliant and should be seen by every Pern fan.
