WHY an elephant Stencil? I love elephants and we have a lot of family connections with elephants! My uncle Gerd used to work as a zoo keeper at the zoo in Wuppertal. His stories of the elephants always fascinated me the most. And as a little child my grandaunt Margot used to tell me the story of the Tuffi a female circus elephant who jumped out the famous monorail in Wuppertal into the river in 1950 (no elephant seriously hurt!). And I loved all kinds of stories elephant related…and Elephants can be represent so many things..memory, strength,  mental strength, fun, intelligence. Need more reasons or an elephant stencil? Nope- LOL- ok…let’s continue on

Check out some samples here:

Here is what I created for today:

Loved working on this big canvas and applying layered stencils and collage elements and then spray paint – there is a lot of texture on this canvas.

    Love the stencil. Like you say, elephants are symbols for soo many things. And your canvas is absolutely fabulous! I love the bright colours and the contrasting dark back ground that looks almost like a starry night! BTW, my German teacher in High School (Frau Brauer) often told us about the Zoo in Wuppertal and the elephants so it’s a small world ;)
