Lion and Sunflowers

This was pretty much a technique experiment involving a lot of drybrush-kinda work with a large filbert brush. The results obviously aren't as detailed as most of my stuff, but I do kinda like the textures that emerge out of it...and since I went over to fluid acrylics almost exclusively awhile ago, it let me actually use some of the tubes of paint that have been staring accusingly at me from the corner of the studio for a couple of months now.

Where the little lion in the turtleneck came from is anybody's guess....

6 x 24, acrylic on gessoboard, original is for sale, prints available for $10 and $20 plus shipping, send a note or visit [link] for details.

Cute. I like the humility of the lion here, a stark contrast to the typical "Imma kick yo' ass" imagery lions get stuck with. A great bookmark piece.

Lovely use of color.
The lion is clearly the sunflower God. After all, sunflowers are the kings of all flowers. :)

Hehe, cute. I like how the scarf is the same colour as the stems.

That's really cute in a surreal kind of way. I'm actually a little creeped out by how the lion in turtleneck is obviously derived from the sunflowers. -that line between cute and creepy is really thin for me, sometimes.

i love how he's holding his own stem with his paw. did that sound dirty? that sounded dirty. i have no idea how to make that not sound dirty. it isn't dirty though. his big lion head is blooming toward the sun. okay, now everything is sounding dirty...i'll stop. nice pic.
