Giraffe and Giant Baobab by deskridge Giraffe and Giant Baobab by deskridge
A giraffe wanders lazily through the tall golden grass on an African savannah in the early evening. Standing next to a pile of boulders at the crest of a hill, it glances back into the distance where a gigantic baobab tree reaches into the sky. Majestic clouds drift away to the south leaving behind a clearing sky and revealing a full moon which has recently risen above the eastern horizon.

The background in this piece is reminiscent of the work of Maxfield Parrish! :nod:
