Flower Forest & Sweet Elephant

Painting by Niya Christine. Copyright

#86/365 Paintings

I like this elephant’s life. She saunters from beautiful vista to beautiful vista. Even flower forests look after her. Of course it takes really tall flower trees to protect such an elephant of girth, long tusks and charm.

Project notes: This is a collage of a couple paintings in the recycle pile. The elephant was an incomplete painting. And, remember the decorative flowers—the textured large sunflower, etc.? The roses never made it. But I do love them much more now in their reincarnation. In fact, I’m delighted by what collage produces. The paintings in the recycle pile have new meaning now.
