This is a very special painting for me. The Nature Conservancy – an organization whose conservation work I follow and admire – contacted me asking for the piece. I had no idea what would transpire after that request, but soon after, they showed me a beautiful #elegram mosaic they created based on my painting. It includes thousands of paintings, drawings, photographs and submissions from people all over the world. Check it out here:
Also, on May 10, a copy of my painting was given to the First Lady of Kenya as a token of appreciation for her conservation work. (Click here to see the post on twitter) I’m still astounded, and honored by the opportunity they gave me, and I hope to do more art for wildlife conservation in the future.
