Hubert and Kalisa were a famous lion couple at the LA Zoo. They were famous for being in love with each other. They met at the Zoo in 2014. They grew old together, (age 21). They should have been allowed to go into that sweet sunset together. Unfortunately, they were not allowed to die naturally. This breaks my heart. But hopefully, they will be remembered in the wonderful photographs taken of the two of them, and in my painting. Oil, 20"H X 24" W. I wanted to capture their being part of something greater than themselves, as those who are lucky to grow old together, in a long happy marriage, know so well.
