It is refreshing to be painting animals I have never painted before. For that reason I have branched out my subject matter to include wildlife from Africa. As I have researched African species I am in awe at how large and powerful they are, especially Cape buffaloes.
Covid pandemic has changed our lives like never before. I had abandoned painting horses many years ago, but since the pandemic I find the familiar subject brings relaxation. During covid I did a horse running from a storm. The storm will overtake the horse, but the outcome is uncertain for the animal. It parallels my life diring covid.
