When I Look In Your Eyes
Another in my series of paintings that focus on the eyes of one of God's most amazing creatures. The look in the lion's eyes says it all, much better than I ever could. He is beautiful, he is powerful, and he is not tame. Not really. Not in his heart, where it really counts. He knows who he is. No matter what man may think of his own importance, no matter how he tries to control his surroundings, the lion will always be The King of Beasts. And that is as it should be.
This painting is pastel on Ampersand Pastel Board. 8 x 10. It was listed on Art Helping Animals on Monday night and has already been purchased. 20% of the sale will be donated to Tabby's Place - A Cat Sanctuary, because inside every kitty beats the heart of a lion.
