lol….no, seriously…..’there’s an elephant in my garden’ …by karin taylor…..little girls love this design, i try to remember what is was like being little myself, and what I would have loved on my bedroom wall…this painting is a product of my imagination that began in a moment of inspiration when my parents showed me an elephant topiary they saw in Tasmania, they now have a number of topiaries in their own garden.

There’s an Elephant in my Garden
a drawing on catridge from my Art Diary
I hope that the grownups who look at this painting will remember something special from their childhood, some hopeful feeling, which will help them through today’s difficulties. There are all the colours of the rainbow in this piece, to remind us that there is always hope, no matter how hopeless it seems sometimes. The rainbow is a sign of hope.
Children See/Children Do powerful message for grownups
I hope that all the children who look at this painting will drift off into a faraway place in their imagination and feel wonderful for a while, especially if things are getting them down…and if life is wonderful, may this little picture add to the wonder and spark the imagination.
Big hello to Maya!! :)
A sepia drawing before I colour this work…. “there’s an elephant in my garden”
Inspired by my parents talk of topiary gardens in Tassie and their topiary teapot in the backyard and my little girl with the curl Sarah, who’s all growed up now (but this reminds me of her when she was a littlun)…thanx Nenek and Poppy….luv ya
