I have never painted a lion. They are mich harder to do then I thought. The first time it looked more like a dog. I started over and I am much happier with this end product. This is done in acrylic painted on a cigar box.
A friend recently game me some cigar boxes. Her husband loves a good cigar after dinner. Well she says she has a garage full of empty cigar boxes. Now I have never looked in her garage but I said I could find a use for them. Bottom line – ” Don’t throw them away!”
So I painted them. Here is my latest
In Watertown Wisconsin local artists paint canvas banners that are hung on Main Street during the summer. Residents vote on which banners they like the most. In September the banners are taken down and are sold at auction.
My banner titled Going to Church got Honorable Mention. My husband purchased my banner for me. All proceeds go to beautifying the city of Watertown. It is done annually and I am already thinking of what to paint next year.
