One such time was recently when I was creating a VERY LARGE canvas. It was mostly lots of layers of papers, paint, inks ~ just my artsy side getting it on. I wasn't sure what I would create from it, I just knew I wanted something large and something colorful.
Here is what it looked like then:
I stared at it for quite a while and eventually saw an adorable giraffe in the canvas. I kind of thought I saw an elephant too but I decided on giraffe. (I actually had started sketching the giraffe in this photo above, but forgot to take a picture before) Can you see the sketch?
Here is an evolution in photos of my little guy:
And here is what he turned out to look like. I think he will look very cute in a playroom or child's bedroom!
