Eras in Bloom

Eras in Bloom

5″ x 7″ Watercolor on Strathmore cold press

In the reference photo, this guy was actually a statue in front of McDonalds, somewhere in France.  Isn’t it fun that we can just do whatever we want, when we paint?  I gave an ancient mammoth a free place to roam.  If that statue could talk, he would probably be horrified to be standing in front of a fast food restaurant in a bustling metropolis!  😀

    This big and fuzzy just make you want to put a leash on it and take it for a walk, and what Leslie said, she just says it better!

      Thanks, Ryan! If you took it for a walk, it would give a whole new meaning to scooping up your pet’s “little presents” and carrying them away with you. Whoa! Sorry, but I couldn’t resist. 🙂

    Not only is your mammoth beautiful, it is a great example of using secondary triad colors. WOW!
    I like your quote today, Beth. It brings credence to staying centered.
