Kiss of Rain
The difference between the desert and the lush bush is startling. The greens are varied and bright; the landscape is full of life and color. Here is a view of the bush from our room in Little Vumbura, a wilderness site in a private reserve in the northern reaches of the Okavango Delta. It sits on an island so in order to get there, we flew in a small plane, drove almost an hour by 4 x 4, and then took a 15 minute boat ride. The views and animal sitings were well worth the trip.
This mixed media work Kiss of Rain captures the verdure and lushness of the bush.
