All Mine


Today I had fun and painted an Ostrich Male with his collection of eggs. I did work on the second giraffe, but I just felt like doing this Ostrich image I had drawn up a few nights ago. I want to do a larger image with his legs and a couple of hatched eggs so this is just a study for a larger painting. However, I did draw up 2 other companion pieces when I drew this one so I guess it's just a smaller painting of an Ostrich and of course has to stand on its' own. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into an Ostrich's love life. The females lay the eggs, but the males are the ones who help gurard and protect taking a very active interest in their offspring. Which always helps no matter what species you are. Hope you had a good productive day fellow artists, and write when you get work! Annie
