Just returned from Kenya. Since I do not paint animals or landscapes, I will remember my trip through the faces I saw, starting with Gatiki who was our fabulous guide.

Thanks so much. It was a dreadfully long trip but so worth it! Kenya is absolutely gorgeous! And the people are so charming and happy. Too bad I don't paint animals or landscapes - I'd be busy forever!

This is great Gayle, well done and to be honest I think I see more of the country in that face then perhaps in a landscape...Bravo and glad you had a safe and fantastic trip! Welcome home.
