Elephant Sample Painting

I was a little nervous thinking about painting my five foot elephant so I decided to do a smaller 16x20 inch first. It won't be exactly like this, but similar. I still have a little left to do on this one, but I had to step back and take a break.
Today was also my first "open studio" day which I plan on doing once a month. It's a fun day for artist friends to get together (no instruction) and work on our own projects. We all had a great time. This one was very impromptu, but I hope to be more organized for the next one. Karin


  1. karin...that elephant is cute. I love elephants. :) Your first "open studio" sounds like FUN! Glad you have a good one! have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

  2. Hi Karin!
    Sounds like a great way to work.
    I really like the way you've used the blue in this painting. And the stunning eye lashes too.
    It's great! I'll look forward to seeing how you go with the large one.
