The Elephant is doing painting. Thats first for me. Anyways Very good post.

Seems to me like a representation of fleeting human spirits... Incredible! Thank you for sharing this wonderful painting of Karishma. I would hope to see more of this work. Check out www.jhak.se/blog/ I am also involved with elephants and art.
