African White Rhinoceros
9" x 23" Pastel
was fascinated by watching this 'tank' like rhinocerous lumbering
down the beach at Lake Nakuru, Kenya, famous for its flamingoes.
For a moment, looking at the rhino with the flamingoes behind
him, I thought about C.S. Lewis' Alice in Wonderland. It was
such a strange sight to me that I half expected the flamingoes
to turn into croquet mallets and the Queen of Hearts to jump
on the rhino's back and ride off into the African sunset!
