Moonlight Swim At Midnight

moonlightswimThe hippo is an unusual, exquisite animal. The enormous size and girth of this animal is as magnificent as is the rich color of the hippo. I felt this animal would give me the opportunity to capture the beauty of nature, while expressing my own love and appreciation for color and for the hippo. The ear on this particular hippo has been damaged from a fight with another hippo. I decided to paint the ear torn, to reflect more of a natural lifestyle of wild hippos, than creating a perfect portrait of the animal.
