Thanks to Billy Joel for the title idea for this one, although I'm pretty sure he didn't have a giraffe in mind when he wrote the song. Anyway, I had waaaaaaay too much fun with this one, and I discovered the joy of scumbling. I can honestly say that I don't think I ever scumbled before, but it worked beautifully for the background. I shall now scumble with abandon. Woo-hoo! A new skill to add to the artistic toolbox. This was so much fun, I'm going to do another small one for the silent auction. Then I may have to do a few larger ones. For the moment, Giraffes have usurped Rust as my Subject of Obsession. I think I may be suffering from Artistic ADD.
My Muse refuses to go on Ritalin. To impressionability, and beyond!
