Maybe time to advertise my mothers website.... :D
It is not only Kruger art, but a lot of it is inspired by their visits.
Have a look at her site.

Psst: CD is taken already. Clever Dog...

These 6 giraffes were inspired by our first trip to SA. Acryl on canvas, each is 2 meters high. As you can see, I'm not so much into realistic painting
:lol:

Jay wrote:you know, I've had an idea...I think all the artists on the forum should hold an exhibition together, I know the logistics would be quite something, but the end result would be sooo worth it!

Any ideas...?

Ok,

I will set up an album in the image gallery called "Public Art Gallery".

But:

1. The images cannot be high-res. Max width or height will be 500 pixels. File size of the originally uploaded image should not be more than 500 KB.

2. We cannot protect those images from being downloaded, i.e. stolen. Can you live with that?

3. No selling of art can take place online, although we would not mind if someone somewhere contacted the artist (for example via forum PM) and inquired about purchasing the art.

How many artists are interested in "exhibiting"? That will help me decide which way to do uploading... Please open a new thread for that.

Yes, I'm a librarian, but an artist on the side...it's always been a hobby for me. One day I'd like to do more with it.

Here are a few of my older paintings, I've not done anything recently...

Dear all,

Please note that in an attempt to promote art related to SANParks, we changed the title of this thread to "SANParks Art by Forum Members".

Please refrain from posting art related to other places in the world. This is a platform where we can educate the public about SANParks and we hope you would respect the focus and determination of this site for what it is.
