With their complex emotions and instinctual ability to form a strong family unit with impenetrable loyalty and devotion to one another, elephants stay true to their loved ones even years after they pass. This is something that I admire the elephant for.
Done in oil, this painting is on hand stretched 36x36 canvas. I forced myself to be free with the image, and tried not to get caught up in the detail. I did this by doing the layout upside down. This is the first painting in my Lucid Dream series.
