IF-SHAKY ~ Happy Fourth of July !!

(note: I did a bit of research on the gait of an elephant as it walks. From what I have been able to observe, the legs on one side extend in either direction while the legs on the other side meet in the center. Although the gait varies a little, this is as close as I could come to an accurate representation of the "walk.")




We rode along with the festive parade
and carried our huge flag proudly.

Our ride was admittedly shaky but
our friends in the crowd cheered loudly.

Very nice! I love elephants, but always have trouble drawing them. I guess I need more practice! :) Yours looks great...Happy (belated) 4th to you, too!

I posted at picture-bookies blog...was I supposed to do that? I didn't know if anyone could just post a comment *blush*

I love the stars and the flag. I think American flags are very hard to do, so well done! A very fun, festive piece, Ginger! I hope you had a Happy 4th!
