Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

" Catch a tiger by the tail"
To have a tiger by the tail refers to the act of having ‘embarked on a course of action that proves unexpectedly difficult but that cannot easily or safely be abandoned’. Similar to this phrase is the Chinese proverb ‘He who rides a tiger is afraid to dismount’, which gave rise to the phrase ride the tiger.
Signed on the front
I created this painting using fine artist oil paints which will not fade when they get exposed to UV light Painting continues around the edges of the canvas giving a very contemporary style although it can be framed if you wish
