Setting aside color and working on exploring a full range of light and dark, this painting has been a long-time passion of mine. Specifically, the Nemean Lion which was a prominent creature from Greek mythology for its role in the stories of Hercules. The Nemean Lion gets its name from its home and hunting ground, Nemea. Legend has it, the Nemean Lion was as graceful and beautiful as the average lion, but was also supernaturally strong and with a thick skin that is impenetrable by any tools known to humankind. Just as the Nemean Lion applied tactics of deception and strategy to gain what he wanted, so too did Hercules. Nemean Lion reminds you of the need to use your intellectual gifts and creativity to remain a step ahead of others.
