Namibia Impressions 4,Save the Rhino Fundraising by Marion Hedger

Namibia Impressions 4 - Heat of Etosha
by Marion Hedger
30 cm x 30 x 3.5 cm (12" x 12" x 1.5") oil on 3mm thick MDF canvas panel
Palette knife painting

This painting evokes the heat and heat haze around Etosha pan. Even in the evenings the air is hot. The background is blended paint that has been enhanced with impasto palette knife work suggesting the shimmering colours seen on a hot day. Etosha Pan is a dried up salt lake which floods in the rainy season.

After spending some time in the Desert Rhino Camp in the Kunene area of Namibia early last year, I have a fondness for the desert-adapted black rhino. They live in a desolate but beautiful area in the North-west of Namibia and are monitored and protected by the rangers of the Save the Rhino Trust. These black rhinos are highly endangered and face a constant threat of extinction due to poaching. The Save the Rhino Trust does a great job with minimum resources.

Half of all sales of The Namibia Impressions of paintings will go to the trust - So please spread the word and help the cause. In a world where many of our animals are disappearing, every bit of help is an advance.

And how it might look frame
