This beautiful family of lions actually came from the zoo! No matter where they live, these marvelous creatures are regal and majestic and among my favorites in the animal kingdom.
This beauty was a participant in the contest I held in early 2014 to “Win a Free Painted Pet Portrait”. She made the Top 25, but didn’t win the contest. I secretly hoped she would win – I just had to paint her! So, I got in touch with her mom, who gave me permission to paint her and the rest is history!
Yomi is a precious young lady who attends the same high school as my daughter, Rebekah.
This young lady is as beautiful on the inside, as she is on the out; Yomi graciously agreed to “model” for me so I could paint her portrait. As a portrait artist, I tend to “study” people and their unique features. The moment I saw Yomi, I said, “I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO PAINT HER!”
