Painting With an Elephant is a children’s book inspired by a trip to an elephant sanctuary where I spent three days bonding with Thong Petch, the elephant I was to paint with. The Second Edition was published November, 2022. Additional information on the paintings are found here.
Below is a video of the Thongpetch making the painting in the book.
I am an artist and creating a piece of collaborative art with an elephant was something I really wanted to do. The entire process was so amazing that I decided to create a book on creating the painting.
I envision adults sitting down with a child on their lap and reading the book together, being amazed at an elephant learning a new painting style.
