I'd be lying if I said this painting was a quick one. In reality I had the canvas with the original sketching sitting on my easel for over a month. I just couldn't visualize where I wanted to go with the painting. After a change in the original plans I decided to just lay some paint on the canvas and see what happened. I think the spontaneity of oil painting sometimes is one the most enjoyable aspects of actually doing the work. This painting (for me) is a good example of just that.

"Old Elephant" is a 20"x20" original Oil on Canvas using brush and pallet knife.

The image will be framed in a floating frame and made available for sale shortly.
