When I travelled over to the UK in September I had made my daughter a very big wall hanging depicting three elephants and bordered by an Ndbele (a South African African tribe who decorate and paint their homes with wonderful graphic designs) design. So I guess you could say that at that time I was totally into elephants. I must add that they are notoriously difficult to draw - they look so easy but this is not the case. However I decided to use the idea of an elephant which is completely different to the ones I made for my daughter and tried to depict Derric's style and colours. I used a lot of paint and very little stitching, which was a fun exercise for me. I attach his works as well as my own. I must say that initially I thought this would be a breeze but when I actually got down to it, it was not as easy as I thought it would be and I am not altogether happy with what I have produced.
