"A Little Bird Told Me"  36" x 48"  Acrylic on deep gallery-wrapped canvas with blue painted edges.

Normally, I use only my own photo references for my paintings, but I really connected with some photos taken by Colin Garland during a visit to Kruger National Park in South Africa and was given permission to use them.  I found this antelope with the bird on its neck absolutely endearing.  I know the relationship is simply a symbiotic one of the bird getting a meal by ridding the antelope of insect pests, but it's difficult to keep the mind from drifting in a fanciful direction.
