Every time I ride Kilimanjaro Safaris in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, I get a taste of Africa. This painting was partly inspired by the ride and entirely inspired by God’s wonders in that far-off land. I never cease to be amazed at the beauty of the zebra, the majestic elephant, or the kingly lion. Disney’s rides may be impressive, but they can’t compare with God’s ingenuity in His creatures.


Nothing is as beautiful as an evening safari, so I used orange and yellow hues for a sunset feel, with teal for contrast. I purposely added hints of blue, yellow, and orange to the animals to give them a warm glow.


I’ve never been to Africa, but I’m grateful that God has allowed me to travel there in my imagination. I hope my painting will take your thoughts on a safari full of ideas and wonder.
