Okapi!







With my other commission "finished" (really just waiting for customer approval and reaction - some colors may be tweaked around a bit) I was able to begin and finish this little painting for my friend's son! It went fast because it was just too much fun to paint. I kept hurrying the drying time on each layer because I wanted to keep going. I love when you have an idea for a painting and it clicks just the way you want it to! All of the sides have this striped pattern.

oh this is just wonderful :) I love how you did the pattern around the edge to match the pattern on the opaki.

an okapi! never, ever seen an okapi before. Maybe that's what it sounds like when it's running: okapi okapi okapi
Excellent painting, I love the softness and the colour scheme and the stripes on the sides!!!!!

Lucky kid! This is such a beautiful and fun painting. I love the sides, too--like themed socks.
