CONCEPT OF ARTWORK
There are very few animals that nature has created that are as beautiful as a tiger. This painting shows a rather cute version of the animal, and a soft, delicate flower. When there is so much sadness and bad news in the world, I want my paintings to bring people pleasure over time.
