Crown Of Gold

Close up

Oil on 7x5 hardboard.

This is my submission to Saundra Lane Galloway's great blog, Art For Life. This month her challenge features super animal shots from the Denver Zoo. Come on , artists!! Join in! :)

I love painting the big cats!
The way in which the sun illuminated the outer edges of the lion's mane, I was reminded of a crown...and , well...after all...he is the King of beasts.

Revelation 14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
Thank You, Martine Alison

I have been given the Happy 101 Award by Martine Alison! Thanks, Martine...I am honored. Martine does wonderful, thought provoking, art. My friend all the way over there in France has the Dollhouse blog. Please check her out!!
I will have to pass on naming other artists to receive this. Just check out my blog list. They are all very award worthy!


  1. O boy! What superb painting! I agree the illuminated outer edges adds glory to this king! Excellent!

  2. Amazing , Love the crown of light

  3. Wow! Stately and beautifully done. That main is superb. Had to pop it up even bigger so I could study your masterful brushwork.

  4. Gorgeous beast here, Dean. Lovely!

  5. Wonderful as always!
    Dean I have passed the Happy 101 Award to you. Please visit my blog when you can to check out the rules.

  6. Beautifully majestic, Dean. The tawny color is perfect and I love the light in his kingly "crown"!

  7. A lovely lion, how peaceful and patient he looks. Now, you realize of course that here you can see the real thing in the wild? Good wildlife paintings fetch very high prices in South Africa, it is our tourists who want them! I do not even try my hand at it!

  8. Well done, my friend. You certainly have a way with the big cats...and everything you paint.

  9. Also, congratulations for the award!
