What's New

Wild Things

I am very fortunate to know Charlie Sammut and his staff at Vision Quest Ranch in Salinas, CA.



“Wild Things”, a 50-acre wild animal rescue “resort” is an incredible inspiration to animal lovers and artists alike. The Ranch is open to the public and is a definite “must see” when you are in the area, especially for children. It is very safe and the staff is extremely patient and friendly.


Please visit their web site at www.elephantears.org.



Since “Wild Things” is a non-profit organization, Charlie always seems to be in need of funds to feed and house his always-hungry animals. Once a year, a fundraiser is held at the Ranch, from which the animals enjoy the full profit. A number of Artists and friends participate in this on a regular basis by donating Artwork and other valuables. This year my contribution is a 36x48 inch oil painting of his three elephants, Butch, Buffy and Lisa in the Vision Quest Ranch setting. The painting is named “Out of Africa”.
