They say an Elephant never forgets but, what if he remembers what he never forgot?

This painting was a present to a minister who I felt carried an enormous burden not to forget important things in her life and ministry. I always saw the feeling of fustration that she had anytime she forgot a birthday or an anniversary of a church member. She had/has an enormous responsibility to so many people and I often felt for her.

So I came up with this painting to cheer her up and to tell that, “a great Elephant always remembers what she never forgot”. I hope it helps her to remember things that she shouldn’t forget :D
