It is interesting that working on a piece of artwork can change your attitude about your subject. And that is what has happened to me recently. I have a new work in progress of a mountain lion. Now I must confess, I have never been a big fan of the mountain lion. I have always loved and respected the Wolf species. I guess you could say it is like a dog lover and a cat lover. But as I have worked on this new piece of work, I have gained a new admiration of the mountain lion. And that has brought me to a level of excitement as I think about my next piece and what how I will gain admiration of my next subject.
