“Don’t say goodbye” is a message from the animals to the tourists who come to see them in Africa. This is my first ever submission into a Painting competition – Wildlife Artist of the Year – the Oscars of Wildlife Art Competitions – soooo – wish me luck?!
The artwork depicts 21 Animals on the”Species at Risk” register prepared by Tusk Trust – Raging from the majestic Elephants, the mesmerising Gorillas, to the rather unglamorous Vultures. They all play a crucial part in the ecosystem in which they live.
The aim of this artwork is to start a wider campaign, encouraging tourists to carry on supporting the animals even when they are home.
We’ll reach the tourists via the hotels and safari lodges they are staying in, showing artwork on the walls, and selling “Don’t say goodbye” postcards & prints – with the proceeds going back to support local conversation charities, like Uganda Conservation Foundation in Uganda for example: www.ugandacf.org
Thanks for reading my first blog in my new website! I think you might be able to make a comment (don’t say goodbye!)
P.S. If you’re a hotel of safari lodge, please drop me an email: email@example.com
