This is an outstanding piece, Pat! Another favorite! I love the movement in this elephant! I wish I can see it in person!

Thanks, Hilda. I know that you visit the Carlisle area at times; MAC is only 5 miles from there. One day it may be in the stars. lol

How beautiful, Pat! I love the intimation of the alizarin crimson and the viridian stands well on its own in the water. I can almost hear this behemoth splashing towards me!

Thanks, Sherry. I did get a little looser and abstract with the water, which hopefully added to his weight and movement.
