Roar- Lion painting

Every now and then my daughter will pull a picture off the Internet and ask me to paint it for her.  Since I'm not doing it for profit, and won't be creating any prints or products from it, I usually go ahead and do it for her.  So last weekend I started this baby and I finished putting his whiskers on today.  Thought I'd share it with you.
Today is also Paint Party Friday, so be sure to go there and check out everyones paintings.   Also, there are 4 days left for the DAWG Blog Movie Challenge, thought this one would be a good one for the Lion King.


Hope you have a wonderful weekend and stay safe.
~Brenda
