My best friend's son is just about to be a dad for the first time.
I offered to do a painting for the nursery....he said he wanted a lion.
So here I was thinking of doing The Lion King...or similar....BUT NO!
He wanted a REAL lion.
So...here is my first lion....
I hope it doesn't scare the baby!

 :eek: He's a wonderfully ferocious looking fella Terri! Baby had better learn to growl early!  ;D

He's a great first lion, perhaps dad is thinking mum won't want it in the baby's room and illegally adopting the painting for himself?!  :whistle:    :2funny:

Either way it's a wonderful painting. Well done.  :clap: :clap: :clap:

Wow--just great.  I love this Lion's personality and the vertical background.
