Description This giraffe is staring straight at you. What is he thinking? This was a fun painting to do. I started off experimenting with the canvas, not really sure where I was going with it. LOts of paint and drips and time later I decided that a giraffe must appear on this canvas and away I went. I have painted many giraffes so to do it without looking at a reference photos was comfortable. I am not sure I would want to mess with this little guy!It is painted in acrylic paint on canvas.
Penny Pausch, Jonesboro Member Since February 2012 Artist Statement I grew up way back in the hills of Missouri (U.S.). I was a country girl and loved every moment of it. My sister and I did not have many toys and so we played outside on trees and other things in the woods and learned to use our imagination. This has become an asset to me. I knew by the 5th grade that I wanted to be an artist more than anything else. I like to paint, sew, minipulate objects so that they are interesting, cook, and write poetry. One of my goals is to write a poetry book and illustrate it. I recently have gone back to college after 17 years of raising my children.
