The Talented Mr. Elephant

My friend is having a baby :) and decided to make a little art for her baby's room. 

I thought this elephant had a quizzical yet studious face when I saw him at the zoo.  Perfect for a baby's room!
I wonder what he was thinking about.  Maybe peanuts? I don't think elephants even really eat peanuts. :) He was a funny elephant, and not shy at all. ...

Ha. He looks suspicious. Mayhap he thinks you're about to steal his peanuts? Nice work!

What a sweet gift! I think elephants are a symbol of good luck... not sure but I believe I have heard that.

He does look inscrutable ... I also like him in the third stage.
