Purple Elephant and Butterflies.
In this sketch I’ve added one of my favorite flowers of summer, Black Eyed Susan’s. Each morning as I go for a run, I thank God for these bright gems that stare back at me from the tree-line. If you take the time to stop by a Black Eyed Susan, you’ll notice the rich fragrance of wild honey which reminds me of good books and Earl Grey Tea.
Regarding the elephant in the room, I decided to go with a rag-doll look for this happy fellow. Adding quilt patches and rope hair gave this elephant the look of a friendly stuffed animal rather then a wild creature in the safari.
