elephant affection is a variation of another painting of mine recently completed the indigo elephant

Elephants are incredible mammals with huge brains, they now believe the elephant to be one of the closest to humans, not unlike the apes and the dolphins who also have large brains. Elephants are empathic and altruistic beings as we are. They are intelligent creatures who have many times, protected and saved human beings. They mourn over their dead loved ones, and touch them tenderly. They devise solutions to problems and look out for one another when they get into any sort of trouble, they will work together singularly and as a community, to help one another. They bury their dead. They get depressed. They play. They show off. Baby elephants must learn behaviour and skills from their mother for many years, they are not born with instincts like some other animals. They are like humans in this way and must learn and be taught. The elephant is a truly inspiration animal, and I love them. I hope that comes through in my drawings and paintings, I hope you get a sense of that when you look at them and find them uplifting and inspirational too.
