framed original lioness oil painting, 508 x 508 mm, by award-winning Kenyan artist Karen Laurence-Rowe
I stopped to look at this magnificent lioness on the edge of a riverbank as she stared intently into the distance. I couldn’t see what she was looking at. Or was it a faint call that drew her attention – something my inferior ears were unable to pick up? Whatever it was, that slight tension in the arch of her neck and the piercing gaze was something I was compelled to capture in paint.
