  19. I'm one of those people that always watch nature shows and I love how your paintings show these animals in their natural habitat. I also really enjoyed how you captured the expressions on their faces as the lion bonds with the cub. Wonderful work... :)

    1. Thanks, Julie. I finished up by darkening it in the upper right corner. It's framed up and gone - no photo, but it doesn't look too much different.
