This "new" painting is of a sleeping lion cub, snuggling up with a blanket. It is a long overdue gift for a cousin of mine that had a little boy last October. I promised I would do something for the nursery, but I just could not seemed to get "inspired". Finally, I got the bright idea to look through some of her facebook photos of the nursery. Quite by accident, I stumbled across some of her vacation photos and found this cute little guy. He is perfect. What could be better than a cute little baby animal, snuggling with a blue blanket....and it will remind her of a great vacation as well. Here is a photo of the very early stages...starting to block in some shadows and highlights.
Too cute......don't ya think!
