We saw this handsome couple when we were last at Mombo Camp in Botswana. They were part of a large pride and she had some small cubs that I was initially going to have in the painting but I decided to keep it simple, the old rule of "if it doesn't add to a painting it probably takes away from it" definitely applied. This is my major piece for Western Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Sept this year

New Zealand Welcome Swallows almost identical to Barn Swallows, we have them nesting under the studio, they are one of my favorite birds as they gracefully sweep over the lawns catching insects. These young ones would sun themselves on the fence just outside the window every morning.
