The King is a new painting for my Heni’s Happy Paintings Etsy Shop. I had painted a lion cub a while back which I titled, The Prince. I wanted to paint an adult male lion with his large dramatic mane as a compliment to the first painting.
I remember watching “Born Free’ when I was a child and dreaming of traveling to Africa to live with the lions. They are such majestic creatures. The lion is a symbol for Leo, the sun is shining brightly behind the lion is the ruler of Leo. Leo’s love to shine and like the lion are leaders, big hearted and loyal.
