A couple of months ago, friends asked me to painting something for them based on the following quote: “Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn’t matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle… when the sun comes up, you’d better be running.” This is what I came up with…
I was really happy with the result, but I still had another idea bouncing around in my head. I did several sketches, playing with the position of the gazelle until I finally found what I was looking for. Here is “Another Morning in Africa”
This painting has a slightly more intense feeling to it, but that’s what I was hoping for.
This painting is available from Etsy.
