About this painting:
In in realm, not far away, where elephants have wings and foxes make magic tea, a gathering of animals has begun. There is about to be a picnic - not an ordinary picnic but a magical, Enchanted Picnic. The Rabbit has carried the green apple upon his back and the Bird Wizard has the key he has been looking for. The Fox is pouring the tea while the Finch watches for new arrivals. The Elephant has a message for the Fox, so he flutters closer to whisper it to him. Nobody is certain of what is really about to happen but they are ready for something magical.

In this illustration, I have used some symbolism to not only tell a story but also to relate it in some way to our own stories. The key and the key hole are symbols of hope and possibility. In our human experience, possibilities are abundant, and fruit, often known as a symbol of abundance. We sometimes cannot see the possibilities right away, or perhaps we just need the right key to unlock them. Winged animals appear in many of my paintings and illustrations. I associate wings with freedom and self-transcendence. The animals also embody symbolic qualities that humans can relate to: The fox represents wisdom and cleverness; The rabbit embodies creativity and abundance; The elephant is a symbol of strength and power and birds and often seen as beings of illumination and empowerment. These are all qualities that reside within us. We just need to find and awaken them.
It is my hope that the viewer will find their own meaning and story within this illustration and to keep on wondering: What will happen next?
