In support of Education for Wildlife VIetnam
80x60cm acrylic on canvas
Someone in Vietnam has now started wildlife tours that do not involve taking tourists for rides on trained elephants. You can now visit thes gentle creatures in their gardens as you wander through lush tropical woodlands and discover the beauty of Vietnam's natural habitats - more like a wildlife reserve. I hope fun rides on these intelligent beasts will soon be a thing of the past.
If we don’t dare to dream, if we cannot imagine the future we want for ourselves, nothing can change. Many are saying that the Covid19 pandemic is a chance for the world to reset; to reset our hopes and dreams for the future, to stop bespoiling this beautiful plant, to halt the greed and curtail our consumerism.
These red paintings are about the things that are important to me; the things I must not lose or endanger; the things that delight and mystify, that thrill and make me feel like I am a part of this beautiful world.
