The painting, Bottlenose Dolphins was entered into the Wildlife Artist of the Year 2008 competition held by The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. It was selected for the exhibition held at the Mall Galleries in London on 24 June at which the prize winners were announced.
It did not win a prize but was sold at the exhibition for £1 350 Pounds - R20 000. Half of this was used by DSWF for their conservation projects.
The Wildlife Artist of the Year exhibition was held alongside the Three Generations exhibition at which paintings by David Shepherd, his daughter Mandy and eldest grand-daughter Emily Lamb were sold.
A total of £75000 was raised for wildlife.
