Near our home there are these outcrops of rocks, and I just love the way they change color depending on which way the sun is shining. Here it was late afternoon sun, and they glowed orange in the sun.
Oil on canvas - 600mm x 460mm. Can be rolled into mailing tube.
It was a very hot day in Chobe, Northern Botwana, and this old man decided to head off to his health spa. He gave a sigh of contentment, and sank down into the mud bath, and the oxpeckers massaged and tendered to him!!!
This moment was hilarious, we were driving through the bush and came around a corner into a breeding herd of elephants. With lots of trumpeting and earflapping, the herd moved their babies into the bush to safety ....... with the exception of the matriarch who patrolled up and down the road until her family were safe. She then took up position right next to the road just behind the tree, almost hiding away from us, but keeping her eye on us to make sure we left!!!

It was a very hot day and we were at Nxaai Pan, trying to find some shade around the waterhole and watching what came down for a drink. This beautiful Martial eagle regally landed and began drinking. I jumped out of the car and inched a bit closer to try and get a better picture of him, and he watched me every inch of the way.
I seem to have a fascination for painting Zebra - maybe it is the stripes that get to me.
This was bought as a wedding present for a young couple, I hope that they love it and get many years pleasure from it - and that they view it together for many years to come.
This painting was taken to the Dam Wall Gallery, a new gallery in
Haartebeesportdam, and it was stolen from there.
Please can everyone be on the lookout for my painting, and if you
have any information about it please contact me.
