I find this piece great. To my mind, sun in the right upper corner amazingly correlates with glares on the fur of an animal. The idea that sun drives away drops of rain semms to me very succesfull. This animal looks like it was depressed at some moment, but soon it will rise and continue its race. I see here some philosophical message to us: our life is colorful and it may be rain in it when torrents will run down from your face and you will glide, get tired and even fall upon grey stones, but all misfortunes are temporary and sun already hasten to console and warm you. And lion noticed this sun and maybe is going to jump up, buck up in some few seconds, but at the moment it is still resting from some difficulties in its life. I'm sorry if I've got the idea in some different from real details, but it is my vision of the story which is depicted on the picture) Sorry for my English.
