I really like the scale of the elephant on the small block. It creates very interesting negative space.

Wow! these are really cool. Great atmosphere. Are these on the deep canvas? I'm drawn to the elephant's eye, then to the tusks, and back around along the trunk. The sheep horns just keep my eye bouncing around the picture space.

I'm just mentioning this because they are both good examples of how to keep the audience's eye focused and moving around the work.

Great stuff!

It's a real treat to see some of your paintings Ester. You may have to retitle the 'ol bloggy soon! Hope the headache is better.

These were painted on 1 1/2" deep canvases. Thanks for all the thoughts.

Beautiful, ethereal elephant. So much depth and texture. Captures the early morning mist feeling, which is one of the most magical things I've ever experienced.
