I have to say I love Rhinos. I took an amazing amount of photos of them. The photo above is my favourite from the African Rhinos.
That being said, I would definitely go to the Zoo again. It was fascinating and felt like we were on an adventure.I also feel really inspired to use these images in other forms of my art.. we'll see how that turns out.

My previous post I put up pictures of my hutch that I painted. So here I will now show you my Table and Chairs. As you can see from the above photo, I painted the table in chalkboard paint! It was a lot of humming and hawing trying to decide what to with the table top, we wanted something we could use, have fun with and enjoy. So, we did it although we did have some issues picking the right roller ( if you do this don't use a foam roller, only fabric really works well.)
