About "Evening Sojourn"

A Captivating sight ,a reflection of life .
As these dagga boys go to water and the purples and pinks spray across the vast African sky , One's mind is focused instantly on this moment , on how the harsh landscape and the dead tress blend with the super strength and attitude of these Buffalo , all blended into a beautiful African sky .
Our lives are built through our experiences , one at a time , like each of the foot prints around this pan tells a story , so to does each breath we take
Life is now ,not in 10 minutes ,right now, this is the only guarantee we have

About Will

Will Maberly

There is something about Africa that catches us all for me its the harsh beauty and reality of it all ,there is a special energy that exists here , its tough , and wild like it should be .
Growing up on a farm here had its benefits , my father was a PH in the early days in Tanganyka , so we grew up amongst the animals and were enthralled by the tales of Africa , the legends ,the myths and above all that special energy that Africa invokes in us all .
My Uncle was well known Artist ,author and illustrator Astley Maberly , who wrote books such as Animals of East Africa ,Animals of Southern Rhodesia ,illustrating books such as TV Bulpins the Ivory Trail and Memories Of a Game Ranger by Harry Wolhutter etc , his ability to bring to life on paper with some lines of ink always fascinated me , and perhaps molded my future
Art has been truly rewarding for me , giving me perspective -in fact Life is very like a painting , in a painting, we form an end result in our mind, we may even sketch it but how we get there with the brushstrokes, the blends of color, the textures and the directions of the strokes are what forms our ultimate piece
So to does everything we do in life, the way we behave, what we say, the way we make people feel - like the blends of color, and strokes of different sizes of brush we become what we are! We are perhaps the artist of our own lives!

My passion for Elephants amongst other species goes back as far as I can remember , perhaps from the stories of old tuskers on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and the Selous - their intelligence as a species and the deep sense of knowing they portray , has led me to often refer to them as old souls .
My love for these creatures is what started me sketching and then painting ,and yet its the incredible symbiosis that is nature that has been my inspiration that feeling of intelligent energy that overwhelms me in the presence of this magnificence .
Behind each Painting there is a life a story about that special connection , the heightening of the senses and the realization that we are undeniably a part of a higher more organized order
I found that , whilst I loved sketching , Oils became my medium of choice as I am able to more accurately represent the deep colors of Africa , Oil paint can have a unique texture that allows the artist to push the boundaries of the norm there are always new ideas and techniques as a medium I find it open ended and that's why I use them , especially on large Canvas there is nothing more impacting than a large Canvas of Africa !
Soon if we ignore the plight of Africa this will exist no longer , the rate of organized poaching is accelerating , Unbelievably there will be no Elephants to speak of soon !I see that each one of us can impact on the future of the wild areas of Africa the drums are beating , and its time to listen
