That is a noble giraffe. It almost looks like a brontosaurus.
Thanks Fred! It's actually a rare "thunder giraffe" living at the Bronx zoo.Well, not really. I mean, it's at the Bronx zoo, but it's just a run-of-the-mill giraffe giraffe. The sky is from the sky painted on the wall of the giraffe house, but being me, I seem to have introduced an element of the histrionic not present in the original.
Thank you for the gift of this post.
Well heck! Thank you, Edinburgh!
"but being me, I seem to have introduced an element of the histrionic not present in the original."The new blogspot grey-on-cream comment text is hard for me to see, and I first read, "historic." Which is also kind of true, the mountains and sky actually do have kind of a pre-historic (which is still historic) feel to them that contributes to the noble brontosaurus thing.Regardless, it's a wonderful giraffe, past or present. Great composition. And if you look close, you can see a face in the spots!
Ed, I'm not so thrilled you've adopted Mike's face joke. But I'm glad you like the painting. And I have actually gone through the settings, trying to restore the older text colors! I can't figure out how to do it, it's driving me *nuts.*
Dude, I just looked it up on a fairly advanced blog-design website and, following the complicated instructions, went down into the HTML guts of the blog and fixed it. Look at me! I rule!
YES! I can read it much better now, thank you and that is an impressive bit of techno work, I'm glad you could fix it!
