Heads and Shoulders
ORIGINAL OIL by Linda Besse - 14" X 15"

Though I had seen many giraffe on my previous trips to Africa, I was unprepared for the beauty of the reticulated giraffe. Larger than either the Rothchild or Masai giraffe, the reticulated has such refined spot patterns and looks even more elegant in the sun. This pair with his shadow on her made for some interesting shapes and colors.
