Scott J McLean/McLohn/Mclehn Oil Painting Eye Of An Elephant
I had seen this painting in the thrift shop for weeks. I thought it was some weird abstract. To be honest, it was probably not oriented like this, but was placed on it’s side, or even upside down for all I know. But on my visit to the thrift shop yesterday, I looked at it from a little ways a away and I saw it. Up close it looks like some wierd design. But when I stood back, I saw it was the eye of an elephant. How cool! I still didn’t buy it. But I kept thinking about it, and showed a snapshot of it to my wife and she liked it. So I went back today and bought it. It only cost $3 plus the gas I used to go buy it (the thrift shop is a little over 10 miles from my house).
The painting is 16″x20″ on canvas and I believe it is oil. I can see little cracks in the paint from drying. The signature is Scott J McL-something. It looks like McLohn, but could be McLehn or McLean or even something else. And it is dated 07.Scott J McLean/McLohn/Mclehn Oil Painting Eye Of An Elephant signature

It appears this was painted over something else. I can see some patterns under the paint and a little color showing through the cracks in the paint.
