Flower Power was inspired originally by my work on the Elephant Revival Mash Up Series. The first painting was called Revival: a restoration of force. Then I started becoming a little obsessive abut elephants and depicting them in ways that displayed a sense of mastery over their destiny. Which of course I would love to see as a truth in the world by sadly is not so. An Elephant hovering weightlessly over bunches of flowers seemed just the right combination of whimsey and message. I just love these giant creatures.
