animals of africa

 "wild in my reverie, tame within your arms"
acrylic on masonite, 11x14"
This painting began visually (some begin with titles, others a feeling). An image appeared in my mind of a girl in emerald green with yellow hair, covered in wild animals of the African desert and jungle. Their colors are like jewel tones.
Today is the first day of school for our community! Happy back to school to all of you, and I hope you're having a lovely September. xo
