Lilac breasted roller in flight





A Lilac breasted roller in flight is one of the most beautiful birds of Africa, and one of my favorites, this is a oil painting I did some time ago. Hope you don't mind seeing all my past works of art.I am currently working on 2 buffalo bulls fighting so you should be seeing them soon,the problem is that my work schedule is tight , even the weekends seem crowded so its not easy to get down and do some painting. Have recently done quite a bit of flying in and out of the Okavango Delta, some areas are already receiving the flood waters from Angola This year the arrival of the flood waters is already a full month ahead so looks like we in for a big one.Many of the safari camps are building dikes around their bush airstrips to keep the water back when it arrives.However much of the wild life will move to dryer areas.

Your paintings are inspiring and do your beautiful country justice. I enjoyed my visit to your blog.

Thanks for visiting my site Roger. Yes, Winslow Homer had a summer home on the coast about 45 minutes from here. Lots of painters still come to Maine in the summer to paint. It's pretty cold in the winter. Keep on painting your African scenes--they are very exotic to me.
