Wildlife Art Big Cats African Lion

The Lion Sleeps Tonight
African Lion
Pastel, 9.5 x 11.5

Remembering Cha Cha, the African Lion at the Blank Park zoo in Des Moines who passed away recently at the age of 16.  He was majestic, playful, courageous, fierce, truly awe inspiring, and quite photogenic.  Everyone, both the staff and the public, loved him but like Aslan, the great hero of Narnia,  though he was "good - very very good, he was not a tame lion."  And that also is why we loved him.

This pastel is matted and ready to frame, I have listed it on Daily Painters, Art Helping Animals and Chisholm Trail Art and will offer it for sale in my Facebook store whenever that gets up and running.
