I saw this and the first thing that popped into my head was "That's Shea and me!!!" My friend is over a foot taller than me so she's always joking that she's an over grown giraffe. I'm like the turtle/tortise because I always walk so much slower than her being half her height and all. So cool!! I'll have to make sure to point this one out to her.

Congratulations on the DD. It is very well-deserved. I love the pastel colours and the almost pointillist brush technique. It is beautiful. The blue ambient light reflected off the giraffe is sublime!
