4 elefantes se columpiaban
There is a song in Spanish about elephants swinging on a spider's web. It's one of those songs that never end 'cause you keep adding elephants to the web as a counting exercise.
Here is 4 more elefantes! In this batch, I couldn't pick a favorite one, so they are all highlighted.
And here are the process pictures:
Why am I painting elephants and so many of them? Iwill be making a pattern with them. But when I was drawing the elephants I had so much fun I couldn't stop at 3 or 15 even. Experimenting with paint and patterns on them was as thrilling. So, a lot of it is for fun and learning.
Plus, I remember reading Elmer by David Mckee to my kids, so that was the inspiration on the painting of them.
On another note, this week as I was driving to a favorite store, I thought, I could get a job there. Leave work and not have to think about it, no stress about deadlines or learning about running a business.
As tempting as that sounded for a moment, it was reassuring to know that art is what I want to do, learn about, and contribute to the world.
So, how do elephants make a difference? They mean experimenting, they mean joy and learning. Being more consistent at making art is changing me in good ways, and in honoring my gifts I hope to enable you to follow your bliss. See, elephants do make a difference!
