Africa's Big 5 by Cherie Roe Dirksen

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Acrylic on Boxed Canvas…

HOORAY!!! I have finally completed this commission for a friend of mine – to go in his home in Johannesburg.

He asked me to incorporate the big 5 into the picture (as natural as the big 5 can be together) with the theme of a ‘Serengeti Sunset’…

This is HUGE – my biggest painting yet…it measures 100" (is that 10 feet? – I am bad with my imperial measurements) x 40".

The 2 outer panels are 20″ × 20″ each;
the next 2 are 20″ × 30″ each;
and the middle one is 20″ × 40″

It has taken me almost 2 weeks to finish and is definitely my biggest challenge yet…although, I enjoyed creating it thoroughly!

Come join me at my site (click photo above) and get your FREE copy of my book ‘CREATIVE EXPRESSION – How to Find Your Inspiration…’ when you subscribe (also 100% free).

So much is taken for granted on a daily basis and I want to bring to the forefront colour, vibrancy, frequency, pensiveness, wonder, reflection, action and energy through my passions.

My art is how I interpret the world around me, it is how I see this life – a palette of unbelievable colours and a sea of energy. The potential every living thing has and the knowledge that everything is a manifestation of a Divine essence is, in itself, pure magic.
