Artsy Monday Fun!

Today I had some down time and decided to paint a little! I haven't sat down and actually painted something I wanted to since the summer going into 8th grade, and I had definitely forgot how fun it is. Theres something really lovely about just sitting down in your room alone with an idea and some water colors. This specific one I made today is for one of my amazing friends Lindsey who lives in New York City. She is a total city girl (and also has a love for elephants), so I decided to make a somewhat funny painting for her to put in her apartment! I decided to have a frontwards view of an elephant right in the middle of W25th street, to kind of put the whole "Concrete jungle" thing in a literal way. I think the light watercolors make the actual drawing part stand out, and I had a great time doing it! My grandfather was an amazing painter so I wanted to pretend I was one for the day, I even left a little signature on the bottom right corner for the final touch. Let me know what you guys think of my most recent artsy endeavor! xx Flo
