Beauty Above

Several years ago Dave, the little guy, and I went to a wildlife preserve located just outside of Austin. They had all kinds of amazing critters there, but my favorite was a giraffe. This sweet giraffe came right up to the edge of its corral, leaned its very long neck down, down, down, and let me touch its nose. It was the most fabulously velvety moment ever and I felt super honored. What a beauty! I've always wanted to paint it but never had the courage. Today I gave it a go.

I'd love for you to share my art and blog with the links below.  Thanks!

    1. Thank you, Chris! There's nothing quite so soft as a giraffe's nose. Love!
