show every year: "Animals in Art". I have
entered several times in the past. I had
these two colored pencils on hand, so I am
entering them in this year's show. Maybe
that enchanting monkey will charm the
judge, and the gator is such a "Louisiana"
subject, they will want to include him! I
will keep my fingers crossed.
I took the photograph of the orangutan at
the Memphis zoo. There are only a few
zoos that have them. He had such a noble,
distinguished expression, I just had to draw
him. I photographed the gator at the alligator
farm in Natchitoches, where they keep dozens
of them, and do daily shows for the tourists, etc.
lots of fun....
