Yewande & Zuri, Calgary Zoo

acrylic 8x10

I went to the Calgary zoo the other day and couldn't help but wonder at these two. Yewande was born on May 15/2008. It was a much celebrated event as in 2007, three female gorillas died from illness at the Zoo. In August 2006, a newborn was lost after the dominant female in the group claimed the baby as her own from the birth mother, Zuri, and wouldn't let her go.

I like the painterly way you handled this subject and your use of blue in the gorillas fur.
