From my Sketchbook

The Boabab tree dots the African landscape. To the local peoples, these magnificent trees are seen to be retainers of the memories of the ancestors. There is a sanctity about them. Their branches always remind me of hundreds of fingers reaching out and trying to clutch the sky. I love sketching and drawing them.

  1. Beautiful sketch, Don. I was just reading about how the boabab is called the African Tree of Life because of the number of wild species that depend on it. And since I read this in an article on bats, I also learned that bats are the sole pollinators of of the boabab tree. Interesting.
