We have a wonderful zoo here in the Memphis area and many of the subjects I paint come from there. As this pair were sunning themselves, one looked straight at me through the camera lens. My feelings about this painting are mixed, I know our zookeepers are wonderful caregivers, but this tiger’s beautiful eyes made me feel a little sad. “Dos Tigres” means two tigers in Spanish.
