"Born to Run" / Watercolor Batik on Rice Paper / 12 X 16in (30.5 X 40.6cm)
Animals, especially African animals, have always been favorites to paint for some reason.
It is heartbreaking that many of the animals we typically associate with Africa have been placed on the endangered species list: lions, elephants, cheetahs, rhinos, the mountain gorilla (don't get me started).
Anyway, a painter who shares my love of African animals is English artist Hazel Soan. This gifted woman has studios in London and in Cape Town.
