Perusing The Menu-Cheetah
Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. The hostess, Jean, provided the photos.
I about gave up starting on this beautiful cheetah three separate times because I had no idea of what I wanted...Lol. Finally, I just started applying paint runs to get inspired.
Now, I'm happy with how it turned out. It was one of those paintings that keep you in suspense until the end.
I could just imagine by the intense look in his eye that he's picking out his lunch. Hmmm...What looks good today? Gazelle...antelope...hare...??? Think I'll go with the gazelle. I hate hare in my soup.
Thanks for looking.
2 Corinthians 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
