Painting an Elephant

Date November 26, 2007

My dad likes the saying “How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.” I was reminded of this because Alana has been painting. She has become quite obsessive about her artwork, spending hours coloring over the past month, and most recently, painting. She is very much in a monochromatic stage, so generally sticks with one color for an entire picture.A few weekends ago, she painted numerous pictures while standing on a stool in the kitchen. She was talking about painting a tail and sometimes a trunk. Every time I asked her what she was painting, she said she was painting an elephant. So, what you see here is one days worth of paintings, all titled “Elephant” by AKW.

If you are Alana, how do you paint an elephant? One color at a time…… over, and over, and over, and over, and over again!
