You really love elephants, right?
This is how "The Reunion - Limited Edition Canvas" has been born:
“It was September 1809, during the dry season when the fire was spreading rapidly. The elephant pack rushed toward the water basin where they could find refuge. Mary, a large female, and her newborn daughter Linda trailed behind.
You could see the panic in Mary’s eyes as she tried forcing Linda along. A bush fire was a ripe time for poachers to take down prized elephants. Mary felt the sting of the first bullet and began to feel weak. Linda stood confused as her mother fell to the ground.
A dominant male from the front turned to confront the poachers. Roaring loudly as he forced Linda away with his trunk. She tumbled toward the rest of the herd as another shot rang out.
Linda looked back to see her majestic savior fall to the ground, surrounded by the poachers. The herd hastily urged the young elephant away from the carnage towards safety.
Their home was gone.
Waiting at the river was a group of conservation officers. The officers knew they had to relocate the herd. More shots rang out, but this time it was tranquilizers instead of bullets. Linda closed her eyes in slumber.
When the young elephant woke, she found herself in a crate sailing across the ocean. Linda howled for her mother. Mary didn’t answer. Linda paced back and forth in the small crate alone, heartbroken and terrified.
At long last, the crate was opened and Linda was ushered out. She then traveled by train from Tennessee to a New York elephant sanctuary. Linda thought of her mother every moment. The last image she possessed of Mary was the look of fear in her eyes as her mother lay shot.
Time didn’t heal the loneliness Linda experienced. The reserve in Tennessee was a safe place, but without Mary seemed lonely and desolate. Months had passed since the terrible events that took her mother.
On a pleasant afternoon in September 1812, Linda saw a figure running across the lush grass of the reserve. Initially, she couldn’t believe her eyes. Years had passed. She saw her mother in her mind so many times, Linda thought she was merely imagining. But the moment was genuine. Her mother Mary had been saved by the Conservation Officers who rescued the herd, and once she was able to travel, had been sent to the reserve.
Linda ran to her mother, and the two embraced each other the way elephants do. And I was lucky enough to be there. The two majestic elephants stood long enough together that I was able to paint a beautiful picture of a perfect reunion.
From that day after, people say that the painting brings peace, love, and joy to whoever hangs it on their wall.”
