Oh my, Emile....lol :)
I recall seeing an elephant really painted b4. Maybe a movie or Nat Geo??? I can't recall.

I've seen this technique applied frequently on people images and thought, "Why not on an elephant", lol?
Thank you.

Unique, creative and beautiful... marvelous dd work, Carla and a much deserved Gold Winner! Warmest congratulations! (As a side note, I remember seeing a program where Thai elephants actually painted - abstracts - and their paintings sold for thousands of dollars!)
