Different dictionaries but similar meanings. I guess I could not have chosen a better subject for a water-colour.
Enlarging it significantly from a less than 1.5-inch x 2-inch photograph in an India Today magazine, I guess its ‘lion-heartedly adventurous’ on my part to have attempted it.
I really do not know what fascinated me instantly about it to want to do a water-colour.
May be my ‘lion-heartedly fearless’ attitude at dealing with situations?
Or possibly my ‘lion-hearted audaciousness’ to take risks and tread whereeven angles fear to tread?
Or maybe my ‘lion-hearted gallantry’ to help friends even at my own personal peril and comfort.
Or perhaps my ‘lion-hearted gutsiness’ at looking for solutions amidst problems and staying optimistic in all scenarios?
Well, whatever the reasons – my lion themed painting now sits proud on my drawing room wall and reminds me that pursuing my love and passion for those things which I love gives me far greater happiness than anything I do out of obligatory arrangement/or compulsion or force or disinterest – or all rolled into one!!
