Ella the Elephant.
Even as a baby, Ella was an exceptional elephant.
Her charm and her wisdom were immediately evident.
Not only was she stunning and delightfully elegant,
she was also most exceedingly well-spoken and eloquent.
As Ella grew she organized an annual innovator’s event
where she spoke about the things she was going to invent.
Carrying a book wherever she traveled and went,
Ella could easily recite the most informative content.
She understood the principles of what democracy meant,
and she cared very deeply about the environment.
Ella had a backbone that simply couldn’t be bent.
She clearly was destined to be the President.
Cheers & Hugs,
Ella the Elephant is another in a series of paintings and poems I am working on for a new children’s book. This new book will be special because it is going to feature characters that are based on the grandchildren of my best friends. Ella is the granddaughter of Joyce and daughter of Nikole, and they are three very special ladies in my life, as are their guys.
I have one more special character to create before I begin putting this book together. The poem for Mason the Monkey is already written, and I can’t wait to paint him. Mason is Ella’s brother, and I’m looking forward to sharing him with you.
Prints and greeting cards of all of these paintings are available in our McKinneyX2Designs Etsy shop, where you can also order a customized painting and poem of or for someone dear to you.
