Dragons of North America: Amhuluk!

Lately my paintings are not coming out well on my scanner. I can take good photos of them, but excuse the paper edges and errant shadow!
The monster Amhuluk, whose home is a lake near Forked Mountain, Oregon, had but one passion-to catch and drown all things; and when a person looks into the lake, one can see that Amhuluk has even drowned the sky in it, and has made the trees stand upside down in the water.  According a legend he impaled children on his horns and dragged them into the depths.

Needless to say, Amhuluk is a handy character to tell children about to keep them away from the water.
