Kuangalia (the Swahili word for Watching)
Oil on linen, image size 81cm x 81 cm (32"x32") unframed.
I saw this stunning cheetah on a visit to the Masai Mara. She sat and watched, the scene in front of her. She had six cubs and needed to be watchful all the time, every movement was carefully planned. She was a superb mother looking after her family.
This beautiful cheetah has been created with only the finest quality materials. Natural linen canvas is visible in the background, enhancing the effect of the animal created by layers of oil paint. A traditional oil painting, with a delightful contemporary twist that will complete any room in your home.
If you've ever been on safari, you'll recognise this pose from a cheetah and I'm sure will bring the memories of seeing these beautiful animals flooding back.
"Kuangalia" will make you smile every time you look at it.
