Elephant and Calf

Elephant and Calf

Medium: Oil on canvas

The Inspiration

From the Animal Series inspired by a trip to the San Diego Zoo with my daughter. Returning after several to the zoo, I felt it was time to continue the animal series. The animal series is not limited to wild animals, but all those that roam the earth.

Quick Note

Elephants are devoted to their loved ones. They grieve over their dead and visit places where some of their relatives died.  Elephants are affectionate and caring to one another and they especially take good care of their young ones.  In times of drought a mother elephant will regurgitate water from her own stomach to cool her calf. 

Conservation Status
