About "Mother’s Love - Jackals "

Observations in the African bush.

Fact file:
The black-backed jackal (Canis mesomelas) is a canid native to two areas of Africa. As omnivores, jackals like to eat both meat and vegetation. Their diet consists of leftovers from other animals' kills, ground-dwelling birds, reptiles, antelopes, fruits, insects, berries and grass. Jackals have one mate for life, and both parents help take care of the young. After a gestation period of 57 to 70 days, the female will give birth to two to four babies in her underground den. They are born with their eyes sealed shut and it take them around 10 days for their eyes to open.

Baby jackals are called pups. Pups eat mother's milk and regurgitated food until they are weaned at 2 months. Most jackal pup deaths happen before they are 14 weeks old. Many are swooped up by eagles and eaten. To protect her pups, a mother jackal changes her den every two weeks.

About Bernadette

Bernadette Taylor

I've been drawing and painting as far back as recollection allows, attending informal art classes with respected artist Rae Bauer since school going age and throughout my primary school years. Tertiary education included studying Theatre Technology and Fine Art at Wits Technikon.

Working life in summary includes a stint as an illustrator for Upbeat youth educational magazine, special needs teacher aide and informal art teacher, 15 years as an Art & Persian Rug Exhibition Organizer & Coordinator.
I have taken part in numerous exhibitions in Johannesburg, East London, Grahamstown and New Zealand. My artwork is in private and corporate collections in South Africa, Zambia, USA, New Zealand, UK, China, Australia and Spain.
A strong affinity to both Africa and New Zealand - the people, culture and nature - are reflected in many of my artworks. Conservation is something I am passionate about and many of my artworks in that genre are outspoken and confrontational about the ills of human distruction.
Although oil painting is a predominant medium, I love the simplicity of drawing and find value in its purity. I enjoy the unleashing of creativity through the use of unconventional organic pigments and drawing tools, often using coffee, tea and turmeric etc as grounds for graphite or charcoal sketches.
The desire to create and ability to exact that drive, is a gift bestowed by the Creator - to whom I give praise and my unending thanks.
