By Still Waters, oil on canvas 40 x 50

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.

The Big Five

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.. and will send you the itineraries.  These five are headed to Insight Gallery in Fredericksburg Texas

Wet and Dry, pencil 8 x 12.5

The title says it all, in the heat of mid day elephants like nothing better than "spa time" at the waterhole...This is my Miniature for Western Visions at the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming in September.
