Oil on Canvas
I’m a Leo, born in August, so I have an affinity for lions. I wanted the background to be muted and indistinct so as to showcase this magnificent beast in all his finery and majesty. The abundance of all creatures, great and small, are part of the wonderful world we have been blessed to live in.
I am a retired librarian, recently moved to the Boise area from Olympia Washington, where I was active in the Olympia Art League. Mostly self-taught in the artistic realm, I did take a few classes in drawing while living in Belgium, and there also studied oil painting under the artist, Beth Jepson.
