@ckdrew670,
First, a big welcome to Trover and ckdrew and Onetallgentleman, and other recent art fans.

I know I've posted a photo of mine here somewhere, but not this thread -
one of my favorite sculptures, Bernini's Elefante, which is position in front of Santa Maria de Sopra Minerva, nearby Rome's Pantheon.

I couldn't quickly find my photo at photobucket; but here's a pretty nice stock photo -

I see Willa's work in the early pages here was removed, by whose request I have no idea. I had tried to find her pre posting some pics. (makes me sad)

I was five years away from the old gallery, not looking to use her in any way.

That happens when one hotlinks an image file directly from the server where they find it. Many times, it bothers the people wh run those sites.

1. They find a way to block the hotlinked image;
2. The image file is deleted from the original server thus breaks the link here.

None of the images were deleted on a2k's part.

@tsarstepan,
Thanks, that helps. I just came back from the front room, where there is still a small painting by her. I don't care, as long as she isn't pissed at me. Good woman.

@ossobucotemp,
This also means Sonya Fe still owns attention, since that was a photo by me, so I hope it sticks.. another good painter, very interesting. I loved that ~7 ft. long painting behind her, plus she was wonderful.

edgar posted this on the Beautiful Animals thread. It's a sand sculpture of an elephant and a mouse playing chess. Spectacular.

@tsarstepan,
Quite interested in the animal gallery, if there will be a new exhibition, I would go to visit.
