This fine art print by John Paul Caponigro portrays autumn colors at Asticou Gardens in Northeast Harbor, Maine. Asticou Gardens is styled after a Japanese stroll garden with many traditional Japanese design features elegantly blended with the natural setting and vegetation of coastal Maine. Much like this exchange program, it is a seamless fusion of Maine and Japan.

Each fine art print is printed on an 8.5×11 inch sheet of coated archival rag paper using pigmented ink. The image area is approximately 6×7 inches, surrounded by a white border, numbered, and signed by the artist.

In the Wilderness Safari’s Skeleton Coast camp they name the elephants after the guides. The old male, Papa G, not wanting to scuffle with younger males, often walks alone far away from the herd. In musk he can become testy. Giraffes, oryx, baboons and people alike stay at a respectful distance. One evening, we followed Papa G from sunset to dusk, as he weaved his way out of a dry riverbed, across small dune fields, through clay playas, around small mountains that sheltered our camp, and to the water hole that lay close by.

It didn’t look good. The pre-dawn sky was filled with clouds. And our guides were driving away from the dunes. Assured by our pilot that it would be a good flight we got in the balloon and lifted off. Passing through the clouds we saw the sun rise above them on the far horizon. It was a sublime moment!
