Artist's Description

August 21, 2010
It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday, so I decided to bring the children for a jaunt at the zoo. I must admit to an ulterior motive though (other than a wishful attempt to tire my five bundles of energy out and put them to bed at a decent time)… I really wanted to see my giraffe friend Guy.
At first he seemed to ignore me, looking for leaves on the opposite side of his enclosure. A minute passed, then two… Could he have forgotten me? So, I called his name again…
He strolled over, then bent down towards me… closer… and closer… his face about four feet from mine… and gave me another winning smile :)
