Take a close look at the painting above and use your imaginations. Maybe you can see a person in pink at left with outstretched arms, possibly giving signals. Imagine this person is standing at the edge of a pool. In the water, surfacing, painted in green, is a dolphin. Then look to the top of the page. There’s a large dolphin leaping out of the water.
Okay, now look below. The painting was actually made by a dolphin as our daughter Megan held the paper. It was one of the last training project with the dolphins during her month-long internship at Dolphin’s Plus in Key Largo. The dolphin’s name is Elvis.
Is it a synchronicity, just imagination, or dolphin’s mysterious mental powers? I’m not sure I could paint this well while staying afloat in a pool with a paint brush in my mouth.
