The Mosaic Leopard

This little painting(20 x 25 cms) was meant to be part of the background of TIGER LILY AND BLUE BUTTERFLIES but I felt it would make that background too complicated so here it is as a work to stand alone.

Perhaps a tiger would have seemed more appropriate but tiger lilies are spotted hence the leopard, though I so love the animals that are from the Royal Apartments in Montreale, Palermo, that I intend to paint more of them for the exhibition.
