We’re All The Same

Heart of the Leo

When I create an animal portrait I never know what will transpire in the conversations that happen between me and that animal during the creation of the painting.  What I do know is that I will most certainly hear something truly profound from my subjects.

The lion in this portrait lives in the wilds of Africa.  His photo was taken by a woman whose passion is helping endangered species.  When I was nearly finished with his portrait, I asked if he had any special message to convey.

His response left me breathless.

  “We’re all the same species….the species call life”.
