My inspiration for this painting is a female African elephant named, Kayla. What struck me most about her is her expressiveness and her intense love of mud baths! As she rambled around her extensive habitat, I couldn't help but imagine what it would be like to encounter her in the African heat of the Savannah as she emerged from the dust. I sought to capture that moment when the dust began to clear to reveal her in all her magnificence.

I love the red rocks of the Rocky Mountains--their color, designs, and sheer artistry never cease to amaze me, as do the creatures who call it home.
