Puzzled Giraffe

“There is a sense of exhilaration that comes from facing head-on the hard truths and saying, ‘We will never give up. We will never capitulate. It might take a long time, but we will find a way to prevail.’”
– Jim Collins

Puzzled – 5.5″ x 8.5″ Watercolor & Sharpie – for Illustration Friday

Surely you have seen a giraffe of this sort… right?  he he  Well…. maybe in Bethville.  :)

I did this little painting for Illustration Friday.  The theme word is “puzzled”.   I found a wonderful reference photo by jerri rose at WetCanvas, that made this a pure joy to paint.  Fun!  I would like to be able to do IF more often, because I really enjoyed it.
