Dreams of Africa and a Sophisticated Safari

This is a self portrait.  Well, not really.  But I wish it was.  There is just something about Africa that calls to me.  I love Africa, yet I've never been there.  Sophisticated Safari is an original digital collage that has been embellished with pastels.  She has a wistful look as she scans the map of Africa.  Perhaps she is longing for days gone by.  You may find Sophisticated Safai in my shop in 8" x 10" size ready to be framed. 

And since we're on an African theme, I'll share with you once again, my Lion portrait Wild.  The 24" x 36" original hangs in my living room.  But you may purchase an 8" x 10" archival giclee print in my shop.

Starting today and running through the month of June, I'll be donating 10% of all my sales to the Berkeley East Bay Humane Society in West Berkeley, CA. The shelter was destroyed by fire on May 20. They will need much help to rebuild.

Your Sophisticated Kitty is wonderful, E. I really like how the pastel shading brings out the details and creates such depth. She does appear to be standing in a memory (or a longing 'o)

I'm attracted to Africa also - maybe because it's so exotic and different from New England and is home to such beautiful animals. I read a book long ago that said all of our ancestors originated in Africa. Wish I could remember the title, I'd like to read it again. Good luck with your cause. Sky and I plan to list something good in his shop soon to help out a little.
