This drawing is the second one I created in preparation for my Africa 2012 trip, the first one was “Serendipity (African Elephant).” I have been spending many hours studying the most likely animals that I will encounter and of course Zebras are among that list.
As I get closer to my departure I am having apprehensions about my travels, for those of you who do not know I have a healthy fear of flying. As my anxiety rises I like to look back at quotes I have written down over the years and the one that helps me moving forward at this junction is one from Mark Twain.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~Mark Twain
