Stripe Challanged

God, Nature, Earth, Life, whatever you want to call it, is a living breathing miracle of art.  It is the one source from which all representational artists pull inspiration.  In a way, we try to recreate a graspable, purchasable (word?) form of what already exists in our world.  Every once in a while I get a a little pinching feeling, like I am a fraud.  "God already made this.  What am I doing?"  The feeling is usually fleeting and a I paint my pretty picture or felt my cute critter and glean the satisfaction that comes with someone loving it, or even better, buying it.

For this reason, I have rarely painted sunsets.  If I do, I am not happy with them.  They are never as magical as the real thing.

Tigers are the animal felting equivalent of a sunset painting.  Dare I?

In the past, I have dismissed any notion that I could needle felt a tiger.  Yesterday morning, despite plans to do otherwise, I could not "NOT" make a tiger.  Out of nowhere came the overwhelming inspiration and it had to be done.

For better or for worse, hit or miss, here is my tiger.....
