Artist Melissa Vance Goodman who lives and works in Portland, Oregon, creates beautiful still life paintings of fruit, books and tea kettles that also include dragons. This makes her paintings both whimsical and spooky at the same time. They invite you to come in, have a seat, have a cup of tea and pet these mythological creatures.
If you follow her Instagram account, she also shows you her process from sketch to final painting. Sometimes, she even demos how she paints those amazing dragons, such as in the video demo below. You can watch the complete demo at this link. Make sure to visit her Instagram to see all the wonderful fantasy/sci fi art that she creates.
