I wanted to paint and offer something "generic" enough to put up for sale but I also wanted it to be something that represents part of me. I knew it would be a landscape of some sorts. I went through my childhood memories and it hit me like a ton of bricks, er.....rocks.  Elephant Rock Park in Missouri! My family and I went there about once a year for as long as I could remember growing up. So I looked through various pictures and this is what became of these memories.  Oh also, my daughter LOVES Elephants and she was naturally intrigued by this place.

"Chester" is a white Pomeranian dog of my brother-in-law and his family. He is a very loved and spoiled dog. So what better gift to paint them?
