elephant blessing by © Karin  Taylor

“elephant blessing” dressed in mocha frame/off white mat

Previously I created the version below which was very colourful, reminded me of bubblegum icecream, but I I wanted to create another version for a more subtle, softer and natural looking effect…… here it is, to the left, inverted and toned down considerably to give it an old vintage story book look and hopefully a bit of charm….with added layer from ‘crackle burn’ – I hope you like this simpler less loud version, I really enjoyed reworking it :)

rainbow elephant blessing by karin

may the sun rise to guide you,
as the morning opens her arms;
may the moon find the child within you,
so that you might be charmed;
may the love that is the answer, find you wherever you are;
may the rainbow remind you of hope
as the elephant never forgets
and may all those who know you,
realise the treasure they have

original drawing on cardboard poster
with mechanical pencil, coloured digitally
after photographing the pencil drawing…
overlays and texture added from Crackle Burn

The letter ‘K’ (signature) is brought to you by my dear friend raindogs who created it specially as a gift, I proudly add the ‘K’ to my art, as the signature on my works which to me symbolises my friendship with raindogs and all my friends here on redbubble in the spirit of collaboration and community
