Last nights attempt to paint a silouette was a dissaster.

My elephants drinking at a waterholes look more like moles

Tonight a second attempt in one tone maybe!

Last night I painted a lighthouse that I think I will give my father for Christmas.

Unless that's too vain?

Mexican Pelicans

In March we took a trip to Mexico with my sister and our families.

On a boat trip to The mangroves near Mazatlan we had a pelican join us on the boat.

Here is my impression.

Hyena Pan

Our company has secured the rights to a private camp in Botswana on the border of Moremi Game Reserve.

Our first permanent camp.

I've been painting recently, after about 10 years and it was not exactly like I was any good 10 years ago either.

It is however relaxing and stimulating and in this stressful period of our lives it helps me to cope.

Hope you enjoy them.
