To end off the year….I finished off with a special project – a manatee!
They are little big sea creatures, related to elephants of all things, because they have tiny nails at the end of each flipper, similar to an elephant’s toenails. Gentle and slow moving, they spend most of their time eating and resting. My kind of creature.
Sometimes called sea cows, fully aquatic veggie eating sweet looking creatures. The manatee has been linked to folklore of mermaids. How lucky you are to be compared to a mermaid.
That’s the end of 2018 paintings for me, this was a gift for a future veterinary doctor and saying that sounds good too….
