An African Experience
by Simon Combes

Artist, adventurer and conservationist Simon Combes called Africa home. His art portrays the grace, power and mystery of the wild with an exacting technique and attention to detail. Best known for his stunning images of African landscapes and wildlife, Combes’ paintings would be mistaken for photographs, except for life and warmth no Nikon can capture. In An African Experience, Simon’s focus is on the pride of the Serengeti. “Little outcrops of rock stand out like islands in the grassy sea of the Serengeti,” Simon said.“Formed millions of years ago during the cataclysmic upheavals and volcanic eruptions of Africa's birth, these rock groups form fantastic shapes. For Serengeti lions, rock garden oases are more than
watering holes.They provide lairs where cubs can be born, and havens to escape the heat of the day.They are also vantage points from which lions can watch the parade of life go by.”

Thunder and Dust

by Bonnie Marris

The wild plains horses in Thunder and Dust are the quintessential example of what makes Bonnie Marris one of the finest wildlife artists working today. Combining passion for her subject with mastery of color and composition, Marris' paintings embody the drama and energy of pure wildlife pleasure. “One of my favorite things is to watch horses run,” Marris says. “They run for the joy of it and the love of their own speed, with each horse racing to win. I really wanted to show speed as a glowing, powerful feeling, through bold color and bright light. I feel the point of view in the composition really captures the thunder of the rumbling ground that would accompany such a spectacular moment.”
