Elephant skin – Art from Thailand
Last night’s travel art show at cellSpace was a blast. It was interesting to see people’s reactions to art created on such a long trip, and also to hear their enthusiasm about travel.
Lauren and I also finally got to meet Edward Hasbrouck, author of my favorite book that I read to prepare for our round-the world trip, The Practical Nomad: How to Travel Around the World. He stopped by the show and he and Lauren chatted for hours while I talked with people who came to see the art.
Though they were up on the wall last night, it’s time for the drawings I made in Thailand to make their virtual appearance. From a distance, elephants just look gray. As you get closer though, you can see the complexity and texture of their skin. I used layers of white paint and many colors in this drawing of an elephant during feeding time at Elephant Nature Park.
