Miniature Animal Portraits - Oliver the Elephant
Meet Oliver. He's a happy little elephant who can't get enough of iced coffee (with some vanilla syrup and a dash of oat milk, please!) He loves flexing his muscular arms and often wears bright tanks and hats to match. When he's not working out, you can catch him on the pier, sketching the seascape.
Dims: 3"H x 2.5"W
I started creating these mini animal portraits at the beginning of the shelter-in-place mandate in St. Louis as a way to cope with my anxiety and also break through the creative block that set in immediately after the news broke. Each of these portraits is a new friend I've imagined up, each with a sweet story and outfit. I've attached a faux leather strap on the back of these portraits so they can be hung on the wall, but feel free to take the strap off and use as you would like.
