This digital painting was created from a scene I witnessed on my last trip to Kenya. It was very rainy the entire time we were out on the Masai Mara. We came across a herd of elephants one rainy afternoon and as the animals made their way through the drizzle in single file, this young mother and her calf came walking by. I was moved by how attentive she was and how the young calf clung so tightly to her side.
Prints from this painting will be available on the “Fine Art America” website. Go to the site and search my name. There you will find the prints. All proceeds from the sale of this print will go to “The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust”. This is an orphanage just outside Nairobi dedicated to the care of young elephants who have lost their mothers to poaching.
