Lake Of Dreams – Oil – 30 x 40 inch
The lake moves with the surfacing and diving bodies of a vast amount of pink rimmed giants and their calves. Bubbles indicate where hippos are under the surface snacking on the lake “cabbage”. The air is full of their snorts, vibrating huffs, rumbles and whistles.
On their backs is a variety of birds, unperturbed by the constant movement of colossal bodies creating huge waves, they just gently step onto the next animal when their host disappears under water. There is a sense of peace and rightness about the place but you know you are being watched when you see eyes rise from the surface.
