Akiane Kramarik, Strength age 7 (oil on canvas 30"x 40") I wanted to show the strength of a new lion that i envisioned in the new earth. No longer does he need to kill, so he will feed his family. He needs to be who he is, gentle and strong. His strength, gentleness and love is in his eyes. I painted the reflection of his cubs in his bright irises to show he must be strong for them.
