I love painting big cats, this one was no exception. He was definitely a labor of love. I hope to some day see one. A friend of mine works at a sanctuary with the big cats and keeps asking me to go for a visit, time and money always keep me away... I send them paintings to help them with in their yearly fund raising auctions. One day I will send them me. This painting is an 12X16 on 140lb paper signed on the front and back.
