"Baby Hippo #2" original oil © Saundra Lane Galloway

 "Baby Hippo #2"
6x6" oil on cradled panel

Things are a hoppin in this studio I'll tell you!  WHEW...but good...I've been asked to deliver quite a few paintings to various venues and the shop "Luna's Mandala" up the hill...apparently they love all the color! YEA!

I think baby hippo #2 works best for the baby animal portraits I'm doing for my sweet girl's baby nursery...but she wants both...HA!  So, off they go as soon as they are dry! I'm thanking my friend Carol Nelson for letting me paint with her last year when she was doing her fauvist style portraits...cuz I'm enjoying doing these little guys/girls with lots of fun color!!

Monday evening I am doing a demo for the Palateer's art guild, and hopefully teaching a two day workshop at the Aar River Gallery on February 1 and 2...so it's busy days...but happy days!

HAPPY CREATING!!

Love your hippos Saundra! Such fun - keep them that way. Did you know that hippos are responsible for the most wildlife deaths in Africa. Don't go near those huge jaws!

Great highlights on this little one's mouth. Look at that love shining from his eyes! Perfect for a grandchild, I am telling you!

Thank you girls...I saw a special on that very thing Liz...they may look cute in these paintings...but I know they are dangerous!

Hey, you are a quick study. The colors in your baby hippo are fabulous - what a great painting for the little one's room.
