'Memories of the Serengeti'
This painting was inspired by my recent visit to Africa. There is nothing more humbling for me than being up close to a full grown elephant in his narural habitat, in all his glory. The elephant evokes everything that is both majestic and wonderous of past times yet is in such perril today.
I chose to do a large scale painting in oil with the focus on the ivory tusks which are in such demand, threatening the survival of the species today.
