Lucky Elephant Turquoise
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas
The elephant with its nose and tail up is a symbol of luck and spiritual wisdom in Asia and in many other parts of the world as well. I like the bright colors of Indian art and of the wonderful saris women wear. When I went to India it was like being on a different planet. The air smells different, trees and flowers are different, the wonderful birds and their songs, and of course the people. I chose to have some of India in my paintings, to remind me of the rich, heartfelt beauty of this country.
I love elephants because of their friendly character and their sense for family. Although huge animals, they are gentle and sensitive beings taking care of each other, especially their little ones.
I adorned them with jewelry and colorful ornaments, surrounded them with flowers and other animals who are lucky charms in many countries. They happily smile, jump and fly enjoying the abundance of this Universe.
I sold many Lucky Elephant paintings in all kinds of colors to children, adults, women and men alike. For some they are cheerful companions and for others they brighten up their ambiance. I saw people putting them in most unusual places in their homes to have them close for comfort.
