Description: A realistic composition of three wild African giraffes on the open planes of the Serengeti.
Hi Teresa, we received the paintings. They’re beautiful! Thank you very much. Our eldest will love the giraffes. — G. Callan, San Diego CA
Artist Comments: This painting was a commission painting I was asked to paint for an art collector. My customer wanted to present it to his adult daughter as a Christmas gift. I found this painting to be a challenging one as I had never painted giraffes before. I put a lot of thought into how to approach it before putting paintbrush to canvas. It required studying giraffes from all different angles paying special attention to their spots. (If you want to call them spots, that is. They are more like splotches.) I observed that no two giraffes are identical in their “spots”. Nevertheless when the painting was completed and shipped to his residence, my customer contacted me to let me know his daughter loved it.
This work of art is one of five Africa themed paintings I was commissioned by this particular art collector. The links below will take you to the other paintings that are part of this commissioned group.
- Mount Kilimanjaro Rising
- Victoria Falls, Africa
- African Elephant On The Serengeti
- African Wildlife — Leopard
Other paintings of Africa that I’ve created are found in my blog article called Adventures In Africa Collection.
