Annapolis Lion

Updated: Sep 13, 2021

Artist's Statement:

In actuality, this lion is fewer than eight inches tall – it decorates one end of a wooden mantelpiece in a restaurant located in a very old house in Annapolis, Maryland. But in my imagination, and I hope in this painting, the lion is solitary, powerful, and even frightening.

I think you travel to search and you come back home to find yourself there. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Until the lion tells his side of the story, the tale of the hunt will always glorify the hunter. Zimbabwean Proverb The greatest fear in the world is of the opinions of others.

And the moment you are unafraid of the crowd you are no longer a sheep,

you become a lion. A great roar arises in your heart, the roar of freedom. Osho

Courage: The Joy of Living Dangerously Only in art will the lion lie down with the lamb,

and the rose grow without thorn. Martin Amis
