I have kept journals for 9 years and so its surprising that I should only discover blogging as a new format of journal writing. It's about time I embrace it and see if its as fun.

Giraffe and Elephant in a Dali World

Over at the Artist's Playroom the theme of the week is "Famous Artist". So what artist inspires me? Well; Dali has always been a fave of mine, I love his surrealism, his melting clocks and general strangeness of his scenes. So where better to take Giraffe and Elephant, it's already pretty surreal that they've infiltrated the movies - why not let them find the art world too.

Giraffe and Elephant in a Dali World - 2.5 x 3.5 Watercolour ATC

Once again this has opened up a new line of ideas, I'm thinking Giraffe and Elephant photobombing the "Scream" - I would get  them to do bunny ears but they erm don't have fingers, ho hum....
Anyway pop on over to the Play Room to see other Famous Artist inspired great art! :D


  1. Oh, this is so wonderful. It makes Dali's painting so much more surreal, and I'm sure he would have loved it. Two or three years ago I went to a Dali exhibit at the Tate Liverpool, and while I've always had a thing for the surreal paintings, the drawings that were on show were mind-blowing - I'd never seen his drawings before.
    Just thinking about this painting of yours makes me smile.

    1. Oh cool, I went to an exhibition of Dali's in Barcelona and I agree, the drawings were more interesting, perhaps because they're not typically as famous as his paintings. I'm looking forward to exploring this subject more with Giraffe and Elephant :D

  2. Love your take on Dali and the addition of your sweet little animals.

  3. This is such a fun painting Katie. It would surely brighten even the dullest of spaces.
    Hoping wee Georgie is continuing to thrive :0) Mo

  4. Delightfully surreal. I'm sure Dali would approve.

  5. great fun and wondrously imaginative!!
