9" x 12" Pastel
almost a month on the ground in Africa this past summer, I was
intent on finding the Disney "Big Cats" star Notch.
Several weeks after returning home I got news that Notch, featured
in the painting here, was killed by another male lion. The photo
reference for this painting was taken right before Notch began
the mating ritual with this beautiful female....ensuring his
legacy will live on. RIP my friend.
