Beautiful South Africa


I'm back from beautiful South Africa! I had a wonderful time taking in the sights, meeting great people and sampling fantastic foods. And yes, I did get some great inspirations for future art projects from my experiences, including beautiful scenery like views of Cape Town's famous Table Mountain and from animal sightings during safari. Check out the great shot of the 16 year old female leopard seen while out on a game drive at Mala Mala Reserve... Awesome! From the huge collection of photos I've taken during this trip, I'm having a difficult time choosing which ones to try to reproduce as water color images. Way too many great shots to choose from! Stay tuned for my decisions.
