Firedrake, Aereolite, Shooting Star

Working on my Firedrake, Meteor, or Shooting Star painting. I wanted the meteor to be represented as a sentient being, along the order of medieval saints. Looking upward, somewhat disinterested, concerned only with things celestial. I gave it two pupils to get a nice otherworldly effect. Doing that reminded me of the double vision cast iron bottle openers I sometimes see at antique and flea markets. If you haven't seen any, look one up. They're often sold on Ebay.
