Animal Wednesday - Giraffe

We went to the zoo not long ago and the Giraffe's always intrigue me. This one seemed to be saying "Yes, you can feed me. Don't believe that sign." I wish you all a HAW.

Great giraffe Lisa!! They are so fun to paint. That open mouth surely is saying, 'feed me'.

Mim said...

Oh he's really wonderful, so expressive. A bit late but HAW!

What a sweet giraffe!!! It looks like a large impressionistic painting!

Teri, I think the giraffe was hungry I saw it eat a few rocks from the surrounding landscape.

Thanks Mim.

Thank you Julie. I did it in a sketch book so it is a little painting.

I didn't know it was your favorite soulbrush. I love their eyes. I should have tried to just do its eyes but I got that funny looking open-mouthed look in a photograph. I had to replicate it. You are most lucky to have been to Africa. I wouldn't mind doing that trip.

what a beautifully done giraffe. I've never seen one 'in person' yet but hope to one day.
