I started out painting the small image below but thought it was too provocative to include as is, so I added the plant for a little concealment – I actually think it is a little more erotic this way . Check out the full size view, zeroed in on the lion, so you can see the actual brush strokes – like all my paintings it’s a 16×20 Digital Acrylic, meant to be viewed hanging on a wall, not close up. This particular one took 28 hours to setup and paint. What do you think ? Like it ? I won’t tell who the model is that is why I have his face hidden, but you may see him on the beach.
