I've had a thing for elephants since I was a little girl and we would go to see the animals at the Central Park Zoo. There is an amazing clock above the entrance with dancing bears and elephants that greet you as you enter
Later in life I was fortunate enough to visit these beautiful creatures in Africa and see them up close and personal. They are majestic and soulful beings. I share a love for them with a niece and I carry a picture of one every day with a black lab in my phone. (I consider these two to be good luck!)
Fast forward to a chance meeting with the fabulous Courtney of Riverbanks Zoo. Courtney asked if we would be interested in teaming up with the largest artists-in-residents the Mad Platter has ever worked with - the African elephants of Riverbanks Zoo! My heart swooned.
I present to you the ladies of Riverbanks zoo - Belle, Penny, Robin and Petunia! They are the largest artists we have ever worked with, and also the most giving heart! They are donating their artwork to the Riverbanks ZooFari on September 26 and you can bid on it.
But not if I don't first....
