Pride’s View

A lioness watching the sunset.  This painting goes out to all the ladies who bring home the bacon! In lion society the females do most of the hunting, but the male won’t hesitate to commandeer the kill.

I painted this while my friend Christina was on her honeymoon in Sri Lanka on a safari.  It’s also inspired by one of my favorite shows, Big Cat Diary.

I was looking for a quote on pride and was surprised to find most of them were negative.  I think of pride as being something positive.  Here is one I found..

“Discipline is based on pride, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of the goal or the fear of failure.”
