Tiger Relaxing

I can hear you saying it – tigers again!! I can’t help myself. This one looks like he is just enjoying a little chilling out before starting his daily routine!

He’s painted in oils, on canvas board which is 40 x 50 cm in size.

Time to join him in relaxing now I think, while I contemplate my next project. I hope you like him.

Hippo Protection.

I was so sad to hear that the hippos are becoming an endangered species. This picture is my tribute to these magnificent creatures. It’s oil paint on 50 x 60 cm canvas.

Hippos are being pushed towards extinction by an insatiable demand for their long ivory canine teeth. Unregulated hunting for their meat, skin, and teeth, combined with shrinking habitats and increased hippo-human conflict have lead to a decline in populations across Africa. The primary threat to both hippopotamus species (common hippo and the pygmy hippo) are habitat loss and deforestation.
