I was feeling amazing. Even my disapproving teacher liked my art! My friends LOVED it, and to be honest, I think everyone I showed it to thought I should display it to a gallery and try to get it somewhere on a wall, next to the famous pictures. I didn’t think so, even though I loved it as much as them. My other paintings were good, but none of them was as good as this. Nobody else had ever done a painting as good as this in my class. I had painted a happy elephant playing a purple violin.
