Where is the elephant mural in Peoria?

Someone in the world asked this question in a search engine and found my blog (this post is for you oh searcher!) – I hope there are more elephant murals in Peoria than just the ones I have done!

The idea of painting large animals like elephants is very exciting to me. I wonder why ‘cave men’ did not paint larger, life sized, animals – maybe they did and I have only seen pictures that do not provide the actual scale? I will have to research this.

This was the first mural with elephants I painted – Speakeasy Art Center Pekin (now closed I believe – probably gone forever)

I even did a more abstract elephant motif on a mural – I should try something like that again one day as I really like his style!

I randomly put these elephants on the wall in the last days of my stay in this studio!
