New toy alert!! I know I’m about a year behind everyone else but I’ve finally loaded the split pic app that allows me to put the reference photo on one side (always the left in my case) and my painting on the right. I’m now obsessed with it! #splitpic#lionpainting#halfandhalf#wildlifeart#acrylicartist
Lion Commision coming along slowly but surely! Paintings always look different in the morning. My favorite part of the morning is running in there to see how it’s doin! Idk maybe it’s the lighting of the night sleep 🤷🏼♀️
Behind the art: The paint puddle from a blue pour formed an incomplete circle of swirly metallic paint and I immediately saw a lion’s mane. The circle was almost so precise that it looked like a painted cutout, so I imagined that a little blue lion cub was sticking his head through the cutout and wondering what he would look like when he grew up. 🦁

Say this ten times and notice how you say it the tenth time. You’ll be on 🔥!!
Wanted to write these words, as they are EVERYTHING!! I sat down to start this #yaeliquotes painting and as I was painting the under wash layer I began to see a lion. I felt it fitting and went with it 🙌 #yaelioriginal#lifeisart#yaelifineart
Two Of Pentacles @78tarot Work In Progress 🦁🌳 I've been busy painting a way on this beauty! This 78 Tarot deck is Elemental and my card is Two Of Pentacles. This is so different from what I normally paint & I really like that for a change 😸 That's where I am right now. I still have a little to do on the background and I've just started on the lion. 🍃
Here's the description for what I'm painting again since it's been so long since I first posted it... Two Of Pentacles is an Earth card, So stones, rocks, moss, vines, trees, etc ;) I decided to go with a stone lion because I've always wanted to paint a lion. I made his tail extra long in a sort of a half figure 8 to represent the infinity symbol from the traditional card. To me the extra long tail makes him more magical & not just a typical looking lion. The two pentacles are sliced tree stump medallions with a carved sun on one & moon on the other. The pentacles will have a glow around them filling in the rest of the infinity symbol. They will be floating, one inside each side of the figure 8 pattern & will be a be a nice contrast to the stone lion and the glowing around his tail. His tail won't all be stone but a regular lion's tail like he's turning back from being stone. He's standing on balanced rocks that will have moss & greenery on them. I plan on making them taller at the bottom since the card is so long & that's where the 78 Tarot Card Title banner will be covering too. The background will probably be something with lots of greenery and vines etc again good contrast against the grey stone lion & rocks. Some wavy vines & 2 shadowed birds will represent the ships and ocean waves of the traditional card. I think that just about covers everything. It won't be long now before this piece is all done! xoxoxo! Carrie 😺
