Nature photography, political rants, and Martyman laughs from the ten-time award-winning author of "Cool Creatures, Hot Planet," "Endangered Edens," and the "Time Is Irreverent" series.

Zebras as art

Marty’s photo of the day #3059: Yesterday’s photo of the day was about photos people had stolen from me. Today’s post is about the opposite. Back in 2016, Arturo Chávez, a well-known, award-winning painter from Taos, New Mexico, asked permission to use one of my zebra photos for a painting. I was honored to say “yes.” What you are looking at today is my original photo, which I call “Zebras at Sunset,” and Arturo’s painting of that photo, which he calls “Dancing on the Edge.”

I’m not sure what the painting ultimately sold for, but the 36” x 48” oil painting was priced at $17,000.00.
