Elephant 2 and flamingo, too

the elephant skin. The acrylic is on the tusks,
and the blue background, as well as any black.
These canvases do not have to be framed; you
can just hang them on the wall. I paint the
edges black, too, so it almost gives the illusion
of a frame. I seal them with a spray that makes
I hope she likes the elephant; she has already
seen the flamingo.
