I watched two episodes of Hope for Wildlife on Knowledge Network. I was surprised to see Oaklawn Farm Zoo, and Gail and Ron Rogerson in the episodes. It was also neat to see the mailbox and large lion sign that I had painted quite a few years ago. I think the lion has been touched up a bit over the years. I found an old pre-digital picture of it, probably taken when it first went up.

Here is my latest painting. I just get such a release of stress when I am painting them. I'm not thinking of anything else, just enjoying the colour, the flow and the result. I also enjoy it when Lindsay points out things that she can see in the picture.
I had thought to call it frustation, but it's not dark enough for that. Maybe it is Beyond Frustration as one friend on face book suggested. I guess it could be Beyond 'anything' the person looking at it wants it to be.
