This piece was the 'Overall Winner' of 1stAngel's online 2008 Animal Art contest. This unique white rhino art is a digital mosaic where each 'tile' or 'stone' (tessera) appears to have a 3D look. This original artwork image appears to be a high quality photo of a complex and detailed mosaic. The arrangement of the apparent 'stones' is such that they follow the contours of the resting rhino and lend a physical presence and strength to its appearance. The light on each tile comes from the upper left of the image, similar to the direction from which the sunlight strikes the rhinocerous.
The tiles that represent the sunlit dappled ground are longer & mainly horizontal to reinforce the flatness of the earth and display some of its small undulations.
The background is a mass of multi-colored darks, mainly deep greenish hues, that represent the tangled vegetation that lie beyond this glorious animal.

Creating art is - for me - a true give and take between what I attempt to do and what the evolving piece makes me do. Often, when I try to push the art in one direction, it responds differently and makes me take it in another. The art itself surprises me, and it directs me into the area it wants to be taken, rather than accepting what I try to make it do. And so I let myself go and the art takes over and the evolution excites, surprises and amazes me. I love it!
