Old Richard - $100
Richard was an old lion at Tippi Hedren's Shambala. Whilst I was her only nightwatchman many moons ago, she let me go into the meat freezer to feed him. His teeth were getting bad and I had to pick the boneless stuff he could eat. He was gentle and sweet. I watched when he died at night with veterinarians and staff giving him enemas, etc., (trying to save him) when he finally gave up before us. A tearful time for all involved. Will always remember such times. Oils on canvas panel. Varnished with Damar. 11" x 14". Free shipping. Unframed.
