Artist Thomas Andrew with his elephant paintings.
Homewood artist Thomas Andrew Findlay has been commissioned to create four elephant paintings as a fundraiser for the Republican party.
A Limited Edition print from one of Findlay’s elephants will be given to each delegate as a thank you for their service.
Two of the elephants painted by Findlay have the Alabama state flag in the background, and the other two display the American flag as their backgrounds.
Findlay videoed the process of each painting being painted from start to finish and included beautiful music performed by musicians from the state of Alabama.
“Everyone who knows my work knows that I hide an Alabama ‘A’ in every painting,” Andrew said. “For the GOP auction, I have included a new surprise for the audience to search for.”
The models for his pantings live at the Birmingham Zoo.
“We have an amazing zoo and something that no other zoo in America has: four male elephants. They are truly majestic creatures and I love to paint them,” said Andrew.
Andrew is honored to represent his community and his state.
“I‘ve never done anything political before, so I enjoyed having the opportunity to try something new,” said Andrew. “I will be attending the convention to witness the live auction at the Southern States Party. All proceeds will benefit the GOP. I can honestly say that I am honored to represent my state and my country,” said Andrew.
