[SOLD] Dreaming of lions

A beautiful imposing piece.

I'm not fond of lions. Lionesses are badasses, but lions always felt like a lazy bunch. So it was no surprise that this image popped in my head when I was lying on the couch, feeling miserabele and useless, contemplating my next painting. Ob

viously this idea got rejected.

But it reappeared again the next day. And the next. And I rejected it again and again. "I never even drew a lion before", "All that fur!". But every time I thought about painting, the lion was there. I kept ignoring it, until after a few more days it started to keep me up at night.

Fine then! A lion. But only a small one!

The lion wouldn't have it. It wanted to be seen.

When it was finished, I hesitated before I called it done. It needed gold right? Or some bright colours? It didn't feel like me. But the lion decided he was ready, even if I wasn't.

I'm pretty sure my subconsious is trying to tell me something. I just wish it could be a little more specific...
