Elephants are Like Big Flowers

"Elephant Trot"
watercolor (8 1/2" x 5 1/2")

Elephants are like big flowers. Bet you haven't heard that before. What I mean by that is the approach that I take when painting both of them is the same....because if you are like me, floral paintings can sometimes be a bit overwhelming to I say to myself "just break it down into shapes and values"....Maybe we should take this approach in our daily living: if you find something a bit overwhelming and just too afraid to step out and do it...just say to yourself "Elephants are like big flowers"
