Dragon 140 (December, 1988). It isn’t noted in the issue, but the title of this is “Avalyne the Life Giver,” by Larry Elmore. It is my favorite of his paintings, primarily because it is so narrative, but I also like the light and the technique he used for the snow. This was reused for Cleric’s Challenge (1993) and probably other places. One of the all-time great Dragon covers.
