Session #580, Work #531

I must say, that I’m glad I’m done with this painting. It has taken me much longer than I wanted, partly due to some nights of only working a half hour. But, I’m very happy with the outcome.

I painted this in memorial of Watoto the African elephant that passed away last week at Woodland Park Zoo. Although the gesture seems a bit meek I felt it necessary.
