I painted these beautiful cheetah cubs over a period of three months. Very special little creatures with a very special story.
Please see http://cheetahcare.blogspot.com/
When I first saw the photograph, I just knew I had to paint it. (Thank you, Wilma, for your kind permission) The expressions on their little faces tells the story.
It is so sad that there is less and less space for these magnificent wild animals. I hope I never see the day when our human greed, ignorance, arrogance and selfishness totally destroys the remaining dots of nature left on this earth.
And only photographs and paintings remain to remind us of what we have done.
