Gazelle (Dama Mhorr)

39.4 x 39.4 inches
oil on canvas

Mhorr Gazelle from Blijdorp Zoo, Rottrdam, The Netherlands.
The Mhorr gazelle (Gazella dama mhorr) became extinct in the wild in the 1960s. The current world zoo population amounts to some 240 animals, going back to only 12 founders.

I painted the sides of the work. I carry the scene over to the edges. This way there is the option of not framing.
I wire my paintings. So the work is totally finished and ready to hang.
