MORETA: DRAGONLADY OF PERN
For the six weeks prior to doing this cover painting for the fourth book in Anne McCaffrey's Dragonriders of Pern series, Michael had his painting hand in a cast. Although he had the cast molded around his brush and he did 2 paintings during that time, his hand movements were greatly restricted. When the cast came off, the tremendous sense of freedom prompted him to use sweeping motions and bright colors.
