Born Free - Lion by Pollyanna Pickering
  Born Free  (2009)
Subject: Lion
Dimensions (inches): 36 x 40
Medium: Gouache on canvas
Description: Pollyanna sketched this magnificent lion early one morning while on safari in Namibia.
Just before dawn she stopped her jeep near some sand dunes, to enjoy a coffee from her flask before heading out on her main days drive. There was no wildlife in sight, but it was a lovely place to see the sun rising over the desert. She had only been there a few minutes when this lion walked through the sands and strolled up to the top of the Dune just a few metres in front of her. He sat there for about half an hour, and seemed just to be enjoying the sunrise like Pollyanna was! She was able to complete lots of sketches, which were the inspiration for this painting.

African Lions have decreased in number from about 200,000 in the 1960's to a mere 20,000 or less today. A decrease of 90% in 50 years, and it appears that nobody is paying any particular attention. Pollyanna has pledged her support to the LIONAID which is devoted to raising awareness & funds for considered conservation programs in those African countries that still maintain viable populations.
