I really enjoyed making this piece. First off, I just really like elephants! And I love texture and the crackled “mud” background in this piece really captivated me. And finally, the whole concept of these elephants painted from photos I took at the local zoo being represented on a sojourn to their African roots, and enjoying a nice messy tromp in a big, luxurious pool of mud appeals to me as well.
This piece is already sold, but I think some more mud play will be coming up!
