Elephants on the Run

"Elephants on the Run"
watercolor (14" x 20")

Looks can be deceiving....did you you know that despite the large size of elephant's ears, their hearing really isn't all that good...and despite those pretty eyes, their eye site is poor and, get this, despite their being the largest land mammal, they can swim long distances? Go really, what was God thinking when he designed an elephant?...cause I am thinking the features He gave them don't really match up to their functionalities. I wonder if this is why they are my favorite animal....I really am enjoying painting them lately.
