'U'

Our letter for inspiration this week is 'U'. My small study is 'Unpredictable', 6" x 8" in oil, which is a portrait of a Cape buffalo. My Dad had the misfortune to be charged and hit by a wounded buffalo whilst on safari and he is one of a very lucky few that have lived to tell the tale. He has always maintained that the buffalo is very unpredictable and great caution should be taken when in their presence. I felt this big old buff was summing me up as I studied him and I was grateful to be tucked away safely out of harms way, in a 4 wheel drive.
