Elephants are my latest subjects. I hadn't painted any elephants in my circus series, then I painted a folding screen for a client [pictures of that later in the week] and the screen has elephants on it, among many other creatures and things. So I painted elephant # 1: then an Etsy creative challenge came along and the challenge word was bubbles. I saw the elephant blowing bubbles in my mind, then there she was. I'm thinking about the next elephant picture now! Keep posted!
