About "Young Lion"

To me, one of God's most amazing designs of nature, is camouflage. It never fails to delight me. I find it incredible that an animal as strikingly beautiful as this lion, can blend in so perfectly with its surroundings. As I watched the lion, he seemed to both emerge and disappear amongst the dry bushvelt grass. To capture this effect, I used a painterly brushstroke and complimentary colours, borrowed from Impressionism.

Besides his size and power, the lion's facial markings is what makes him so exquisitely beautiful. The white strips under his eyes reflects light into his eyes, maximizing the amount of light entering the eye. The eyes also have a special reflective coating that can reflect even moonlight, enhancing its night vision. All this point to purposeful, creative design and planning by a God of infinite wisdom and order. Each feature is created with such beauty and yet are complex and functional. I therefor cannot accept the evolutionary theory that the features and design of this young male lion happened only by chance and necessity.

"The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God." (Psalm 104:21)

About Anneri

My art reflect the memories, thoughts and thrills we experience as we brush with nature, and the therapeutic sense of serenity and awe we experience as we behold it's rich scenic beauty.

My Mission:
To find beauty, to magnify beauty, to reflect beauty, to point others to beauty.

Beauty is most evident in our majestic wildlife and breathtaking landscapes. When we take the time to soak in this beauty, we are transcended above the mundane and the ugliness of our apparent reality. We are elevated to a place where we can receive rest, find peace, joy, healing and wholeness. To a place where we are stirred to commpassion and respect for nature
