This oil painting represents the process of finding inner strength in times of adversity. The portrait of a lion is rendered in broad brushstrokes of white and seafoam green- colors which I associate with tempestuous seas. These hues transition to vibrant reds, yellows, and blues of flowers, the emergence of which signify the creature’s fortitude and ability to thrive. The lion’s eyes are embellished with a dichroic glass glaze, giving them an otherworldly depth and sentience. With this painting, and with all of my artwork, I aim to evoke a sense of courage and empowerment in the viewer. The piece is rendered on 18 x 24 inch wood panel and is displayed in a handmade black wooden frame.
