Acrylic on Gallery Wrap Canvas, 24" x 30"
This painting includes large amounts of polyester glitter and some metallic highlights. It is an experiment in color and freehand drawing loosely based on reference photos, with an accent on abstraction into broad areas of color. Elephants are fascinating, exotic, matriarchal, and endangered. The background animals are inspired by pre-historic cave drawings. The medieval style sun personifies the landscape. This painting was part of the show "The Gathering" at Stellar Gallery in Oakhurst, 2013.
