Again I was inspired by out last trip to Botswana. It was in october, when it is very hot and all the wildlife congregated at the water, it was such a tranquil lovely scene, but cape buffalo just have such an air of danger and threat, I like the ying and yang.. This piece will be at Insight Gallery for their fall show.
It has been quite a while since I have done smaller oil paintings, so decided to plunge in and do a series of the somewhat smaller "Big Five", there is quite a freedom in doing these smaller pieces and I thoroughly enjoyed it. These are all animals we saw on safari last year, so much inspiration. I am excited about our next safaris which are August September 2016 to Botswana and Namibia and then a second one to Botswana and Zambia. Email me if you would like to join us.. email@example.com and will send you the itineraries. These five are headed to Insight Gallery in Fredericksburg Texas

This is a portrait of Lagadema, the rather famous leopardess who frequents the area around Mombo Camp in Botswana, she played a staring role in a documentary made by the Jouberts, reknown and very talented film makers. The inspiration for this work was provided by dear friend and safari companion Ed Wright.
