His is no delicate spirit.
Thanks to an overly full schedule, I ended up painting this lion at super-sonic speed for my blue-eyed little sister's sixteenth birthday--lucky for me she's a Leo! I was so anxious about the possibility of him being late that I didn't enjoy painting him as much as I should have, but now that he's been well-received and I'm not sprinting to the post office, I'm quite pleased! Since she has already received her birthday box, I can safely share him here.
