Hi Eileen, I'm not getting out enough to photograph real wild critters, so I thought I'd share a few critters with whom I share space in the shop every day.
Leopard stalking the unsuspecting buck
Leopard cub - one of my most popular sellers
Lioness carrying a cub. Lionesses move their [very] young up to five times a day; this is to avoid the father or other predators discovering them who would kill them
This is a painting of the mounatain peaks in Champagne Valley: Cathkin Peak and Champagne Castle being the two main ones
A helicopter rescue into which the artist superimposed the hand of God and the hand of Adam from Michaelangelo's painting in the Sistine Chapel (the image of the near-touching hands of Adam and God has become iconic of humanity)
The Bearded Vulture - endangered and now being conserved in the Central Drakensberg
The Bushman: the first people and the oldest people in the world
Brahman Bull; painted originally on leather and taking four days to complete
These cattle were emerging from the dam called Spionkop. This is on the site of the Battle of Spioenkop (Anglo Boer war)
This painting is called Cow and Calf. It hangs on the door to the shop and stops everyone in their tracks
Muthi and the Meerkats is my best seller on canvas, on coffee mugs, on magnets, coasters, potstands, mousepads, keyrings and clocks
I'm linking to Saturday Critters here
HAPPY SATURDAY TO YOU ALL!
