I have dedicated Riley to a dear young friend of mine who loves elephants! He is far from done, this is just a glimpse. I was able to scavenge some stellar palm fronds from a huge silver palm down the street. I knew they were destined for great things! I enjoy working with natural materials so much, which I harvest after they fall to the ground! I consider them a gift, and they are magnificent gift , at that! I have always loved silver palms, if that is the proper name, they are so majestic.
So it is fitting that they be used to portray a magnificent creation like the Elephant!
