On the Move - African Elephants by Linda Rossin
  On the Move 
Subject: African Elephants
Dimensions (inches): 60 x 72
Medium: Oil on Belgian Linen
Description: At one time I worked with an interior decorator in my hometown and one of her clients asked if a huge elephant painting would be appropriate for their living room. The decorator's eyes lit up and she said 'Boy, have I got a painter for you!'

Shortly afterward I was introduced and discussions concerning size, price and installation took place. Once all of my questions were answered I proceeded with sketches that were proportionately scaled to a comfortable size so that my clients could select the one that best represented what they were looking for. A contract was drawn up, signed, and I then commenced with the painting.

Because these clients lived near by, my door was always open so they could drop over anytime to see the progress on their piece. The day I completed this painting I invited them over for champaign and to witness the final strokes... my signature.

Framing such a large painting was an issue for both the client and decorator, and I was asked if I would handle the framing, which I did.

This commission took a total of eight months to complete from introduction to installation.
