International Women’s Day

I have a strong urge to share a bit of this day with my beloved rhinos.  As you know my road with Exploration with Lines was literally put onto my easel by a rhino cow poached for her horn in a NorthWestPark.  During our days camping in that park, we were twice awakened at night ….. with sounds of grazing rhinos in the darkness of the night.  My heart goes out to the many rhino orphans whom are left devastated when the most important   ‘WOMAN” in their lives are killed by poachers….to feed the senseless needs of ignorant rich people, whom I wish could also visit a park where rhinos are just trying to be rhinos.

I started a new study this morning — a rhino being airlifted to a safer wilderness.  So absurd ….therefore I placed the scene in front of the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

GOing, GoINg, GONE….WIP

I do hope for all woman the same, as for our rhinos:  that we can stay protected by a government who value us with all its powers: law, law enforcement, safe homes and safety…..to be who we need to be.

Happy Women’s Day to all you courageous women.
