The Serengeti – An Endless Abstract Land

My painting Endless Abstract Land is my interpretation of the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. It is painted using ink and acrylics.

Serengeti comes from the Maasai Maa word Serengit and means endless plain and this vast area of grassland spans northern Tanzania and southern Kenya and covers approximately 12,000 sq miles.

As I travelled through these immense plains, which are covered in swaying grasses and dotted with acacia trees, I experienced an almost hypnotic sensation and my eyes and mind simultaneously lingered and drifted as the landscape blurred before me. This is feeling that I have tried to achieve in this painting.

    Wow, your art is amazing!!! I looked through at some of your posts and I’m so impressed! I dabble with painting even though I’m a writer, but I’m a firm believer that creativity is creativity despite the medium. i can only aspire to one day be as good as you are! The rich and vibrant colors in this piece are really doing it for me 🙂
