New Print Release

Today, I am releasing a new Limited Edition print called Metamorphosis.  This is the first time I have released an elephant image and except for the small works size all the prints have been hand-enhanced by me before leaving the studio.  You can view and purchase this print at any of our participating galleries.

Metamorphosis, 2011

Nowhere is the mother and child bond so evident as it is with elephant society. From the time they are born, young elephants are nurtured and cared for by the mother, aunts and grandmothers until they are several years old. The idea of a young elephant maturing into an adult and separating from his family is behind this painting. I wanted him moving towards the bright eastern sun at mid-morning, a time when things become clear and present in the world.
