The first version of this painting was done in the early 80's, and sold for a pittance. The desire to reclaim the image led me to repaint it a decade later, and that led to me getting back into painting on an active basis. The second pink elephant, a small work about 12 x 16, was given away, tho I get to see it occasionally. This third version is a big one, about 24 x 30, and will probably be the last.
The original sign hung over a bar on 1st St. in Long Beach, CA. It has long since been removed, and lives in seclusion in a private collection.
