Extrarordinary painting of very special animals. You have a special affinity with animals that is reflected in your stunning paintings. I have some photos I scanned of a trip to Africa that I want to upload to show these magnificent animals. It breaks my heart how humans can be so cruel to animals and I contribute to animal charities and a wonderful sanctuary for elephants after years of abuse in circuses where they are trapped and neglected. Killing them for ivory for greed is another act that is hard to believe especially knowing how sensitive elephants are and their commitment to their families. Your painting is enchanting and a testament to these amazing creatures. Magnifico!!
