Pachyderm Dream II

A few of you may remember when I first starting blogging I tenatively posted Pachyderm Dream at the beginning of this year.

I never was totally happy with it. I decided to revisit it and worked on it all afternoon. I am much happier now. What a difference several DSFDF challenges and several hundred visits to my favorite artist blogs can do ....don't you agree?
Hugs,
S

Great! the first one was pretty good, but i very much like what you did with the background here with the swirls and also the pachyderm being blue as well really creates an attractive visual.
This is a delightful and whimsical painting that brings great positive vibes with it.

I really like what you've done with a monochromatic color scheme, and I love the variations in patterns. I didn't see what it looked like before, so don't how it changed. Fantastic!

Sheila, this is just amazing, you are quite flexible with your art, a talent in itself.

Nice painting and an excellent project for a sculpture, don’t you think?. Seriously, the ballerina slipper supporting the massive weight of the elephant's head would make a very interesting piece of sculpture. I do remember this piece and the dream idea is a good one.

Mary Paquet said...

Sheila, what a fabulous painting -- monochromatic beauty and the handsome abstract curling tendrils somehow say elephant tusks to me! Art allows me to personalize it that way.

I was so intrigued that I found the first one you posted. Your art has definitely moved to higher level with all your hard work.

Wow, truly inspired. Great work Sheila!

Love the surrealism in this! Merging such a strong bulky animal with that delicate, but also strong, ballet toe is genius. It feels like a dream!
