The lion will not sleep tonight no, neither in his body nor his mind. And now the sun, if any is, has not the tropic splendor of the month meet for the lion, but a cold orb is still gold, but frosted over with the chill of snow forthcoming. There is no madness in the zodiac, no shooting stars to paint the midnight sky with cosmic ribbons. And now the lion, bound up in that dark cave of his own choosing, will close his eyes and think on how he once strode lordly in the light, mane full and blazing in the summers fire, softly padding paws then able to take him to those places he had need to be and fast away from places he had not. His pride forsaken all abandoned to their own devisings his solitary majesty begins to grey to nothing for there is no one to adore it. He does not love the cold alone, but will not stoop to bear the company of winter creatures. And now comes night; there is no prey for all the lakes are frozen. No sleek quarry comes to slake its thirst, unwary. They have fled, these summer meals, taking their hotness and their blood to sweeter climates. And now the snow, each flake as fat and thick as cotton blossom, falls from a sky as leaden as the skin of three-day corpses. This winter lion, this dethroned king of beasts, growls softly as he dens, and, stoic, waits his turn to once more govern all he sees. 2013 RC deWinter
Hello and welcome to my portfolio; I hope the year is treating you gently.
I am a self-taught photographer and digital artist. I have been shooting photos for over 30 years and digitally painting them for nearly ten. Many pieces have been featured in both print and online journals, and five of my works were licensed by ABC-TV for use as set decor on the show "Desperate Housewives."
I am happy to paint on commission. For more information, please email: email@example.com If you enjoy my work, please spread the word, and thank you for stopping by.
