"Elephant Dreams" - mixed media on canvas, 18" x 24". Ready for hanging.
Day 29! In the home stretch and still have energy to spare. This piece emerged from another sleepless night in the studio where I was contemplating elephant dreams. I'd been watching videos of elephants painting (so amazing) and found myself wondering what this artistic elephants might dream of at night? This piece met my goal and is 100% brushless. It is also a paint-over canvas. Can you see the elephant enchantress peeking through?
So this piece truly contains elephant mojo all the way through. And of course that got me wondering - what is the magical power of the elephant totem?
If the elephant is your spirit animal, you have the gifts of wisdom, compassion, commitment and confidence. You are able to remove obstacles and barriers in your life. You're also gifted with the ability to communicate in relationships, gently and effectively.
This gentle giant teaches us to love and support each other, to help us all thrive in the physical world. Elephant energy is nurturing and protective, and gives us access to three feminine energies: child, mother, and wise old woman. If the elephant appears to you, the message may be to be sure you are nurturing yourself and not stretched too thin caring for others.
Elephants are introverts with poor vision. They don't often see what is going on around them. Elephant medicine might be reminding you to keep your eyes open and be aware of your surroundings, even if you want to curl up on your sofa and hibernate.
Elephants are strong! If you have an elephant totem, you have the strength you need to overcome whatever life throws at you. And a strong community of support to back you up. Like an art tribe of gargantuan proportions. Oh yeah!
