This piece is a gift to a very young lover of lions and tigers (click image for larger version). I call it Cat Nap, but he'll probably call it something else. While reading this post I had a sudden desire to do this piece, which led to several other attempts and a lot of other concentration on tigers. What gorgeous animals they are (the real ones, I mean). I had known that, but not like I do now, after a few weeks of drawing and painting them.
My thanks to Pip for his fascination and joyful love of these big cats. And for talking to them on the phone.
"Hello? Hello? Lion. Roar. Tiger. Roar."
