Baby Lion Painting.....fini!

I completed another painting......isn't this the sweetest little guy.  I used a reference photo that my cousin had taken while visiting a lion preserve.  I will be sending her the finished painting as a somewhat belated baby gift.  She is a new Mom to the cutest little boy.  I'm hoping the painting will be a nice addition to the nursery.
He is sleeping soundly....all snuggled up with his little blue blankey!  I did the painting on an 8 inch by 8 inch cradled gessoboard in acrylics.  "Cradled" just means the painting surface continues round to the sides so you don't have to frame it.  You can click on the image for a bigger photo.
