Elephants are intelligent, compassionate and devoted to their families. Killing one of these gracious beings simply for their ivory tusks is heart breaking and stupid. I read that some wildlife managers are staining the elephant's tusks bright pink as a deterrent. If pink works, have at it. I like elephants. I like painting elephants.
This is an original gouache painting on watercolor. It is 6 1/4 x 10". It is sold without matte or frame. This piece will require matting and framing to protect the painted surface.
