I did this painting in Honour of the Rhino that is something very dear to my heart. They might be extinct soon if we dont stop Rhino poaching. Since 2008 up until October 2012, 1441 Rhino's have been killed for their horns, and the number is growing on a daily basis. 455 Rhinos have been killed in 2012 already.
