Madmast - Intoxicated with his own power
Canvas (60"x84") 2011. Dallas, TX.
have been fascinated by these gentle giants ever since I first
saw them. No predator exists which can take on the mighty
elephant. Even the king of jungle - lion, moves away when the
elephant descends on the waterhole. Incredible size with amazing
textures and fascinating form. I wanted to explore them all in
this painting. Beautiful lighting highlighting the form, various
textures on the forehead, trunk and wrinkles on the body.
Magnificent ivory tusks. Wisdom in the eyes. Beautiful aura
formed by the dust. Of course the canvas needed to be this big
to do any justice.
