405 Elephant II

Elephant II-- A Colorado Wildlife Art Commission Painting 40 x 60

"The Elephant has arrived! We are thrilled!  

I just unpacked the piece. I must share, I had a response like this only one other time in my life. I was walking through Notre Dame for the first time very early one spring morning. I was one of the first few people in and I was overcome with emotion by the stained glass windows.  I had the same experience with your elephant. Tears are trying to dry on my cheeks. I'm completely moved. Wow! What a gift!


My deepest gratitude for your work and the emotion you were able to convey through the elephant, the colors, the details."
