We are back from a very successful safari in Botswana and Zambia. We went with Matthew's cousin Pip and his wife Jan. We also went with our favorite travel companion, Johnny Mullane (on the roof). Appropriate since that's where he slept every night. We did a few nights ourselves....different roof, of course! Nothing like Africa to show you the way life should be lived. We loved sitting around the camp fire at night, trading stories and dreading the bush shower that was a necessity with the layers of Kalahari sand on our faces and in our hair. The game viewing was fantastic, lots of favorites and lots of firsts. We have inspiration for months to come.

9x12, oil on board. The Cobb at Lyme Regis is one of our favorite spots to see when visiting Matthew's brother in the West Country. This was the customs house in the harbor on the Cobb. This place was featured in the book and film, "French Lieutenant's Woman"

24x24, oil on board- I was one of those little boys who spent hours lying on my back staring up at the sky. I could see castles and dragons in the shape of the clouds. I saw these Marabous in Tanzania . For me they represent the spirit of Africa. Julia and I will be going on safari to Botswana this september. We can hardly wait!!!
