I am really not sure why I like it, but I really do. In fact, I liked it so much I made the purchase and took it to the classroom. I try and rotate art through each classroom so they see a variety. Often times the local galleries will lend some to me for a week or two do display. It is really fun to watch the children react when things change in the classroom. Sometimes they like it and sometimes they don’t. They won’t see this until next week. I think they will probably do a writing exercise about this picture.
I think I will write a story for them about how the elephant came to be so many colors. What I am really lacking is a name for the elephant. If you have a suggestion it would be great if you left it in the comment. I hope you enjoy the artwork as much as I did.
