    Elephants are highly sensitive

    and caring animals. If a baby elephant complains, the entire family will rumble and go over to touch and caress it. Elephants express grief, compassion, self-awareness, altruism and play. Elephants cry, play, have incredible memories, and laugh. Elephants are social creatures...

    I Love And Have A Fascination With Elephants

    Elephants

    Elephants mean luck when the trunk is up and I have always loved everything about them from their colour to the way they carry themselves with strength and control with a carefree attitude.

    This one was made with watercolor pencils.

    Every time I paint, it feels like I sort of zone out, so the end result is always a bit of a surprise. I really love how this one carries so much affection. I know it's not really me who is painting but Spirit, as I've never taken any classes. (:

    I have always found elephants fascinating

    creatures. I adore the way the love and protect one another. That's why, for several years now, I've collected figurines of elephants. I have a rule though. I never buy them. They can only be gifted. That makes them extra extra special. They become treasures.
