The elephant in the room: a problem everyone knows about but no one wants to face.
LEFSON: 'I set up a pot of yellow paint and had the pig began.. After a number of repetitive strokes, she ended the session with a curved ‘trunk’. It still needed more. On day two I moved the pot to the left so she wouldn’t ruin the trunk, and she made a short line for a leg. Stop! It was a perfect elephant but knowing it needed another colour, I raised the canvas and added green to the paint pot. A few short strokes completed the composition.'
