18x18, "Lucille" acrylic on canvas
Okay...this is my new favorite! I am just so pleased with the way my very first elephant turned out! I created this canvas for my mother and stepfather's wedding anniversary which was in April. My grandmother LOVED elephants and collected many statues/figurines of them in various sizes that were always on display when I was growing up. I used to love to look at them all! The collection was passed down to my mother...who loves elephants as well. She also loves anything African themed...so I thought that I would add my own colorful spin on a look that I typically see in shades of brown, black and gold. I think I accomplished what I set out to accomplish! I also tried a new product...Liquitex Pouring Medium...I used it on top of the flowers...I was hoping for a thinner look to them but hey...it was my first time messing with the product!
