My daughter saw the (tiny) elephants I did and said "I want a really big elephant!". Sometimes our relationship is a bit of a struggle - so I thought it was really neat that she asked me. After I got the background painted and big elephant created - she asked for a baby elephant too. Might lose a little bit of the baby in the frame - but I never make things perfectly even. It's almost done - a couple more coats of matte medium. This is a really large sheet of bristol vellum so I have to find a large frame. Will probably lose a little of the background but that's ok. She also asked for some bling - so gold leaf and mica flakes on the ears and tail. A little hard to see the "gleam" in the photo. I did my outlining initially in pen - but went over it after the painting with charcoal pencil. The heart is a piece of mulberry paper I cut out and died with ink a while back. I guess this piece just speaks to me of "Mother Love". I'll post a picture after I figure the framing out. Thanks for stopping by.
