I created this piece using the tiger as a symbol for strength and beauty. Its spirit is a guideline for the state people’s souls should be. Though it is difficult to reach the point of Mastery, we can all strive to heal from our experiences and spread encouragement to others.

Thanks! I used oil paint, and pretty much everything I put on I used a clean stiff circular bristle over it right away. If that makes sense. I used a sponge and Q-Tips on the eyes. Hope that answers your questions! Thanks again!
