"Out of the Dust"
African Elephant
30" x 24" Pastel
SOLD

I was trying to sketch the wildlife around a water hole in Etosha National Park in Namibia when a dust devil came through, making visibility very poor. Suddenly, this Namibian giant came right out of the dust as though running away from or toward something. Namibian elephants are some of the largest in Africa, but because of the poor mineral content in the soil, also have some of the smallest tusks.
