Artist's Description

I shot the orignal Lioness image at a Zoo.
When I arrived she was asleep. As I lifted the camera to my eye she opened her eyes, and for a moment I felt a contact. Even if it was one that said “I didn’t choose to live like this”.

I have used layers to create a texture that (to me anyway) conjures up her homeland.

Using PS elements I blended 3 layers. The original image, an image I took of a reddish granite wall (slightly desaturated), and an image I took of some coloured flowers in my garden which I defocused to get an abstract effect.
