A New Painting

It started with this sketch in my sketchbook.

And I made some changes and created this 8"x8" painting.

It started with a messy background of papers and paint and I went with balloons instead of a hat.

Then I made the background a more solid color but I tried to keep the texture of the brush strokes.

I call it "Happiness" because you just can't help smiling when you see an elephant on rollerskates with balloons.

The original 8"x8" painting on wood panel is available in my Etsy shop as well as prints.

Thanks for stopping by!
