Hi Peeps first thanks Jean for the pictures .

When I saw the pictures the lion and the dog reminded me of a painting 1794 by Nicolas Maréchal a nice true love story:) with a sad ending :crying: due to human mistake .

Hi Robert.
I love this picture.
It's lovely like a picture book I've read in childhood.

This is really lovely - the painting itself and the thoughts behind it.

Robert - D. likes yours better than the 'inspiration' - so do I! :D
