I painted this Hippopotamus for the perennially lovely Christine for her birthday.  It was only 4 years late, but I made up for that in the size…it is 24×48″ and mounted above the kitchen windows.  I also took a time lapse of this so I hope to get that up soon.

There has been some discussion on changing the color of the water to look a little less like blood…but it was valentines day!  Relajate amorcita!  Dije no es sangre, es el color del corazon!
