This painting was done as a memorial to the female Sumatran Tiger Brytne from Toronto Zoo who was killed December 15th 2011 by the male tiger of the zoo on breeding loan.
comissioned me to paint her beautiful last picture of Brytne [link]
Thank you so much for giving me this awsome commission.
Painting this helped me to cope with a death of someone close to me. Art is the language of the soul and can seal even the depest wounds in time.
