The resemblance stops.......

at our love of peanuts.

I posted way back how I was going to concentrate on a few more creative hobbies this year. One of these was painting.

Well I was doing a bit of research and found this. I think this artist has somewhat of a competitive edge. Looks, personality, talent and so awfully cute.

Watch this elephant, rescued from abusive treatment in Burma, paint a self portrait. You'll be amazed at how his talent unfolds. So touched by their horrific backgrounds and loving personalities, now supports, "Starving Elephant Artisans" by selling their paintings so they can continue to have a new life in Thailand. Whether they are trained or they have natural painting helps keep them alive as it takes $900 a day just to feed them.

Actually I would like whoever trained this chap to give me a lesson come to think of it. Yes, I too would perform for coconuts and claps......oh please, no untoward comments about any other physical resemblances...we don't want to insult the elephant.

I do want one of those paintings though.


  1. Wow... now that is impressive.

  2. Lilly,

    What an incredible video you found. The Today Show or Good Morning America should get this talented elephant on their show. It would probably boost sales and support the worthy cause! I'm visiting their site now and will be ordering some. Thank you for posting this awareness. -- Austin Girl

  4. @ Wickles - I knw othey train them but it is impressive how they have such control with the brush.
    @ Austin girl's favourites - apparently elephants painting is quite common. They are like us, some like it and are good at it and others have no talent at all.
    @ baby- amore - on I just joined Aussie blogger - I saw the logo on someone else's site. Thanks for stopping by. What cute boys you have!

  5. The first Van Gogh Elephant :) That's great!
