Giraffe In Landscape

I was asked last night to paint a sad giraffe, with little trees, stars and a crescent moon. Not something you are asked to paint (or draw for that matter) very often. The giraffe is really more sick than sad. They have really long tongues so I painted a long angular tongue. Hmmm, I don’t know. Hopefully, it will get a passing grade. There is something very dog like about the giraffe as well... the tongue, upright tail, expectant look, “...are you gonna throw me a tree...wag, wag...” / In private collection
