And this is what it might look like from inside the forest of flowers. I sort of want to tickle the tummy of the elephant on the right.

Project notes: These are my first experiences with collage. This past week has been full of experimentation (in the spirit of spring). I love it.


It is spring again. The earth is like a child that knows poems by heart.

Flower Forest & Sweet Elephant

Painting by Niya Christine. Copyright

#86/365 Paintings

I like this elephant’s life. She saunters from beautiful vista to beautiful vista. Even flower forests look after her. Of course it takes really tall flower trees to protect such an elephant of girth, long tusks and charm.

Project notes: This is a collage of a couple paintings in the recycle pile. The elephant was an incomplete painting. And, remember the decorative flowers—the textured large sunflower, etc.? The roses never made it. But I do love them much more now in their reincarnation. In fact, I’m delighted by what collage produces. The paintings in the recycle pile have new meaning now.
