AlphabeThursday - E is for Elephant

As light as air
There's something about elephants and balloons.  Maybe it's because elephants weigh so much and balloons are so light.  For me, elephants are a favorite art subject.  I made this mixed media piece (above) a few weeks ago, for my Etsy shop.  


DharmaKarmaArts is one of my favorite Etsy artists.  Here's a few watercolors from her yoga art elephant painting series.  I think you'll fall in love with her Indian folk art too.

Elephants are amazing. Riding a big one is like being on a moving mountain and the little ones are precocious and dear. For some reason your post brought Babar to mind. I think it's the adult and child together in the artwork. I like the whimsy of you balloons elephant. Makes me smile.

The drawings remind me somewhat of Babar the Elephant stories I read when growing up...always some of my favorite books.

Thank you very much for your post on my yoga art. I am not sure I deserve all the nice things you say!

Your very own elephant carried up by the balloons is priceless! Elephants are inspiring, aren't they?

Have a wonderful holiday season and best wishes for a very happy new year.
