 :thankyou:  Danielle for your lovely comments. I wish I were a great artist ... have a long way to go before I can catch up to you.


 :thankyou:  Tina, yes, my daughter is very happy and so appreciative of all the paintings I have done for her so far which makes my heart sing as it was done in love.

Patricia, this is so lovely!  :smitten: I laughed to read about your daughter's rhino encounter. When we lived in Namibia, we got chased by one. Fortunately we were on a game drive, not a walk.

 :thankyou:  Maryna, I don't know how I missed your lovely comments and my sincere apologies. I appreciate your encouragement. Thank you.


 :thankyou:  Susan for your lovely comments too and yes, we have also had quite a few "near" and scary encounters especially with the elephants because my husband, being Canadian was in awe of all the animals and would venture far too close for comfort, despite me telling him not to get too close, reminding him that these animals are wild and unpredictable but needless to say, it all fell on deaf ears. We spent a lot of our vacation time in the Reserves and deem ourselves so blessed to have seen and experienced the animals living in their own habitat. We can learn such a lot from nature.

Oh Patricia - this is marvelous!!! What a wonderful addition to the animal themed room. And what a wonderful reason to create art - for your daughter! No tweaks necessary. It's absolutely perfect!
Cheers,
Sharon

 :thankyou: :thankyou:  So much Linda and Zayn for your comments. Oh! Zayn, while I have had some hair raising experiences, I am blessed to have seen and learnt about so many animals in the wild and I wouldn't change it for a thing. It leaves you with a very healthy respect for them and nature and we are so much richer for the experience.
