Elephant Love


Elephant Love
5x7
Watercolor
Commission

This piece was inspired by Dali's Elephants.  Dali has always been an inspiration of mine.  As a teenager, I would study his work for hours.  I was drawn to the obscure surrealism and incredible talent.  I especially liked his work with elephants - their long legs, the symbolism, and even the sense of isolation. When I was asked create a piece with elephants inspired by Dali, I wanted to try something different.  Instead of displaying isolation, I wanted to bring the two together - joined by love.  

Lately I've felt like I have so much to be thankful for - a wonderful family, healthy boys, a job I absolutely love, a new connection to my art, living parents, close relationships...and everything else God has provided.  I feel very blessed...and I wish you all the same happiness!
