The Matriarch

The Matriarch is an artwork representing the leader of an elephant family, which is usually the oldest Female Elephant in the tribe.

Elephants might be extinct in 10 years. When I heard this, It brought me to my knees.  To realize the significance of this event is one of major sadness and loss of life. I still have hope that man will try and stop this tragedy from happening. Please help the elephants!

Crocodile Lollipop – Yum Yum Fantasy Art

Posted in ebay art auctions, Original Paintings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 3, 2012 by Laura Barbosa Art

Crocodiles make great Zombie Hunters! If the world did ever fall to a zombie plague, we could drop the zombies into the Nile and let the Crocs eat em all :0) I guess this is my Morbid Art period. Communicating through my art what words cannot say. The horrifying imagery and death scenes I create all have a bit of humor to them in some way.

“Crocodile Lollipop” was alot of fun to create. The subject matter alone brought a smile to my face. To combine wildlife with morbid fantasy is very interesting and entertaining. I guess some people who have weak stomachs might not think kindly to this kind of art, but my fans love it and I love painting it. Hope you enjoy this work of art as much as I do.

Arts and crafts in Mozambique This post is part of the Mozambique 2011 series. The previous post in this series is Daily life in Mozambique – hardship and happiness. As I mentioned in my previous post in this series, the local Mozambicans are artistically talented people. Their art takes many forms including wood carvings, pottery, paintings, locally made and dyed fabrics, as well as bead and shell jewelery.
