Gilbert Ouma, who works at the Exhibits department at the National Museums of Kenya, has been using the current Covid-19 lockdown to work on a range of paintings where he explores nurture, femininity, nature and sensuality.
Heavy Heart is a monochrome painting of two young elephants standing head to head, their trunks twisted around each other in a loving way.
Some of Ouma's nature paintings have been used on greeting cards in Europe.
A collage-like painting of an elephant drinking from a large red rose is actually a statement about femininity.
Scenes of rainy streets often arouse a grey mood and Ouma achieves this in the painting Come Rain or Shine.
