I found this is a process that ebbs and flows. At times you are stuck, or falling back on past themes just to get tot he next level of creative out burst. Here I went back to transforming animals into elephants. After the full 100 were completed, I recognized that this is a necessary step to get to something truly different. It isn't a bad idea, it just isn't as creative as others, but it is a necessary step.

I will admit this idea has been dancing around my head and in my sketch books for some time. I could just never get it right. Here I feel as if I finally made a break through.
On another note, the Quimby Gallery had the closing reception for the itty-bitty 2x3.5 inch exhibit last night. It was a wonderful event. The gallery had 802 2x3.5 images on the walls. 100 of them were this elephant series. It is a beautiful sight to see and so exciting for me as an artist and a gallery director to see the participation and the incredible work. I was also able to sell a large number of the original images from this series. This one is still available.

Number 37 found me trying a caricature of an individual. The challenge was how do I get the individual look like an elephant and make the recognizable. In this instance, I selected the president of Lyndon State College where I teach.
