This is a commission piece for a friend. She is surprising her husband with this painting for his birthday. He is a big hunter and has made a few trips to Africa. Lets pretend that Mike killed the hyena that was terrorizing the local village and they are celebrating their hero. In reality, this is a celebration of some type of kill. The guides lift the celebrant in a chair and wave branches. I love the look of happiness on Mike's and the guide's faces. Mike is a great guy and I hope he likes his surprise. This is painted on a 20 x 24" linen canvas. The picure is not the clearest. I have a hard time photographing bigger works. And...with dropping them and having to paint parts over because they were smudged. #$%#$#$#
