pastel lion - Copy

 
Pastel Lion
Pastel and ink on toned tan paper.

Buy it as a print or card.

Our model lion is 79 years old now. We used his picture from the 1934 Chicago Daily News, shown below. Jimmy, they called him.

“Jimmy” got ruined by over-aggressive spraying of sealant, so we reworked him. We kind of like the second version better, below.
