6"x6" Oil on Gessoed Panel
with Palette Knife

Today's painting is dedicated to a special family friend. A mother of two and breast cancer survivor, my friend knows a courage and strength that comes from a different place than many of us. Last summer, her family traveled to Africa, where she took pictures of these elephants. She told of how they lived in family groups for survival. 

I believe these elephants are a testament to the strength of the family bond among all of God's creation.
