~*~ Blessed Be ~*~

Just did this one today, oh it felt great to break out the pencils once again! I did this for our family wall, the elephant is elegant and beautiful, I have always been mesmerized by the elephants social lives, the way they love and care for each other, they morn there lost love ones and help raise each other's babies, they are really amazing wonderful beings...the position of the trunk was of course intentional, (it is believed by some) that it helps bring good energy, harmony, and good fortune to a home...the lotus flower for the obvious spiritual meanings and symbolisms... As this gentle giant stares at the single lotus flower in mid bloom, what mysteries of life and love does she ponder... In Peace Always, Leah? *This is the first stage of this creation, Pencil on Bristol Board, I am getting ready to open up PhotoShop and see what I can do to bring her to life and add some more spirituality to this piece :)

Equally wonderful in B/W as in color! If I was questioned on which kind of music I would like togo with this image I would defintely say the track "Elf Dance" by Hans Gustafsson (can be found on his CD "Carpe Diem" or on YouTube).
