Elephants Work in Progress 5

BFF's - Save the Elephants

Hi All,

Well, this is a long time coming!  I have been working on this piece for a long long time.  When I first started this piece we had some family health issues so it kept getting delayed.  During the time of this creation, my sister passed away, my mother was moved to a Memory Care Center and has recently passed away herself.

This piece will always remind me of my Mother and my Sister.  I will always feel as if the two matriarchs of our family, Dorothy (my mom) and Pam (my sister) are represented in this piece.

This was done on Suede Mat Board, it's 16" x 24", it's 100% colored pencil and the photo was a photo I took of Maggie and Mara, two elephants that live at the Performing Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).  I have volunteered there at PAWS for a little over 6 1/2 years and I have always loved these elephants.  I hope I was able to do these two beauties justice!

If you have any questions or comments just speak up.  Don't forget to keep scribbling!!
