Geninne, it's SO beautiful.

It reminds me of a quilt that my sister did. You can see it here:

It's an elephant, also with birds in its body (but the birds are hard to see... escondidos).

I've been doing some scherenschnitte cuttings and am thinking of doing an elephant. Today I find a dish I like at the 2nd hand store and discover that it has an elephant logo on the bottom of the dish; then I take a library book out with children's illustration (birds really) and 4 pages in discover a large 2-page full spread elephant illustration. Then later, I go to the one and only art blog (yours) that I have time for and what do I see...a gorgeous elephant! Oh it is an elephant kind of day for me! Thanks for topping it off perfectly. Love your blog, Norma

Awesome! This would look fantastic as a card, maybe as one of a set of different animals with others painted within them. Thinking off the top of my head, how about an elephant that 'contains' other endangered species? I'm sure that wildlife charities would jump at the chance to sell such an image.

Hola Geninne, mis hijas y yo somos fans tuyas a través de facebook y del blog.
No sabés qué sorpresa enorme nos llevamos hoy al ver este elefante - que nos encanta - impreso en una línea de remeras de una marca "top" de ropa femenina en Argentina (por supuesto tuve que comprar una).
