Beautiful rendering of this tender moment Karen..!….What an interesting medium.
It is an interesting medium Meg – something different for fun and thank you for your lovely comments!!!!
Wow…great job with the scratchboard, Karen!!! I’ve wanted to try it, but I’m a little intimidated by it. I don’t think I’d do it justice like you have with this amazing rendering. Really really beautiful work!!!
I’m sure you would Nori!!! It is definitely different as you have to think backwards to how we usually think when we are drawing, but it really is fun for a change. Have a go – I’d love to see what you produce!!!
Such a precious image Karen. Nothing is more touching than that of a mother’s love to her child – you have captured this tender moment perfectly!
So true Sharon – the bond seems no less in a chimp than it is in a human, and it is just so beautiful to watch.

You were definitely the inspiration for this one for sure Auld Yin – how clever of you to pick it!!!! The likeness is uncanny!!!!

Wow! How beautiful. So detailed, you were so luck to get this shot too:-)
I was lucky to get this shot – I could watch the chimps and gorillas for hours. The teenage males playing amuck and wrestling with each other reminded me exactly of our own four boys – the similarities between us and the apes are fascinating!!!!
Wow, just gorgeous work. I’m always impressed.
Thank you so much Jim and you are always so generous!!!
