Thembi Elephant Painting

Thembi (meaning hope) is an original oil painting painted primarily with painting knives revealing interesting texture on the elephant skin.


24 x 30 inches

7/8 inch deep

Sides painted to match background

You view the sides by looking at the inset pictures below


  • Grays
  • Siennas
  • subtle green and gold
  • subtle pink on ears

Warm and cool grays contrast beautifully against a sienna background along with other neutral colors that work well in many settings. The contemporary feel of this painting works well in many home decor or office settings.


Thembi Inspiration

Thembi was inspired on a trip to Busch Gardens in Tampa. It just so happened I had a new camera and was able to capture a wonderful reference photo. Busch Gardens has more than 300 species of animals. Did you know you can take a safari tour there where you can get up close and personal with the animals. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to do this, but it is on my agenda for the next trip. If you like Thembi, I will be adding more elephants to my painting collection as time goes by. Keep watching. Animals are added  on a yearly basis since I transition in and out of seascape paintings.
