The other day I was reading the blog of wildlife filmmaker Mark Deeble describing a ‘great tusker’ in Tsavo, approaching a waterhole – it took him an hour to cover a kilometer, zigzagging across the terrain, stopping to hide his tusks in this bush and then the next bush and while he listened for poachers. The elephants know exactly what is going on!
I’d hoped I’d be able to write more in this blog – I’m learning so much! But so far, I’ve had just enough time to alert readers to some of the well written words of others. By the end of this week I will have completed 6000 paint prints – 1/6th of the 36,000 elephants. They are taking over my studio – a 4’x8′ wall that holds three days worth of elephants, and a suitcase full, also a drafting table covered with some of my favorites for people who stop in the studio and a basket or two, plus a 3′ round wire cage I’m calling the elephant containment system. It should be full in another 8 or 9 weeks.
