Toka. 18″ x 24″. Acrylic on Masonite Board. 2012.
Toka was one of the elephants at the Toronto Zoo. I photographed her on one of my many visits there, when they were in the outside field. I researched veterinary records of the zoo in order to identify her. She had a slit in her ear that gave her away. They have since been moved to a sanctuary in the States.
