African wildlife has always featured in my life. I have a special place in my heart for rhinos, as do many South Africans, because they are such amazing animals, ad they are under threat of extinction. The main featured image, above, is of a rhino which I created in mosaic. Beneath is more art of rhino’s, in different mediums.
I grew up next to the Kruger National Park in South Africa. It was a short walk to the fence from my childhood home. Besides regular visits into the park, my father and I would take a drive at least once a week along the boundary of the park where we would look out for game and birds.
Thank you for this, Caroline. Your art work is amazing….but your life in Africa is, well, I just cannot even find the words. I love the rhino, and my heart breaks with every death. They are magnificent creatures that deserve much more than they are receiving….as do all of those who are in rapid extermination by humans.

Thank you Gerry for your comment and follow. Life in Africa has been amazing. As for the future who knows. I am an optimist and faith keeps me grounded.
Thank you Eliza. Yes, it seems there is no end. Evil is blanketing this world in every way and form.
Beautiful art, Caroline. The plight of African wildlife is heartbreaking. This month’s National Geographic magazine has an article about the African wildlife/human conflict…particularly the use of poison in killing them. So sad.
