Upon Chloe's request: "Mamma, let's paint something together," and so we did. All the pieces came together...I had a 12"X24" inch canvas already painted that had been laying around for years. I often looked at it and wondered what it might become some day. I had a request from Kyle, (Chloe's big brother) to receive an artsy birthday gift and wondered what would I paint for him? And I had Chloe's sketches from her art class of giraffes that I loved...wonderful drawings from a six year old, right?! We painted and collaged this piece and then shipped it off to New York City.
