The eyes that are golden and watch you with a haughty stare. That watch you as if you were lunch. You know you cannot outrun her. You are not sure you want to as you stand mesmerized outside her cage. :o)

I did several sketches at the LA Zoo and took several pictures before settling on this image. I did the drawing for the painting on my iPad in ArtRage and used the photos as a reference for the colors and tones. This took 6 layers and about 7 hours to complete. I took it into Photoshop to finalize the last pieces to finish it.

I try to create images that will touch your heart or soul and make them go “twang”. Eye candy for the soul is my goal. :o)

    What scares me about these large cats eyes is that they appear utterly devoid of feelings.
    That you are an nonentity and only exist as a possible meal!!!!! A wonderful creation!!!! Bill

  • That is exactly my meaning in this painting. I love them, but I would not turn my back on them in a cage. Thank you Bill. :o)
