Rocking Baby Elephant

Rocking Baby Elephant

"Rocking Baby Elephant" happened when a piece of alabaster I was working on began to rebel. I had been thinking of a couple of doves nestled together, but the 'doves' would not nestle. I thought of Renoir who espoused a philosophy of being like a cork floating in a stream, allowing the current to take you where it would. When I quit struggling with the stone, the 'doves' wings turned out to be the elephant's ears! The rest followed. The little elephant just seemed to pop out of the stone. So, I gave up the struggle, and the elephant won! Yours, Grant Crawford
