The Monkey Researcher, 6 x 6 in., oil, (sold)

Painting #71

Another portrait of my pet monkey!

You may recall that the monkey and I were planning a three month trip to Spain leaving in March of 2020 to walk the Camino de Santiago. Unfortunately because of the pandemic, I had to cancel the trip.

But he didn’t agree. Here he is researching news articles on the Internet, trying to come up with arguments about why we should still go. I keep on telling him that he should stick to well-vetted new sources, but instead, he’s been looking at sensationalist news. And we end up with totally different understandings of what is actually going on. He thinks it’s all an overblown fake, some news story that’s designed to repress the average joe, and somehow in some crazy way benefit the elites. And ruin our vacation for no good reason! It’s like we live in two different worlds, it’s hard to even argue…

 I forgive him, though. He’s just really unhappy and grasping at straws. And I have to say, I do admire how he uses his prehensile tail to scroll a smartphone. It makes me wish I had one!

Sorry, sold! Available for purchase. This work is unframed, but it is mounted on a board with a slot in the back which allows you to hang it on a wall without a frame. $135 includes domestic shipping.

If you click  on this linkyou can see some framing options and some links to a few internet companies that offer a variety of frames. Your local framer probably has many inexpensive choices as well.

Any advertising on this site or in emails has nothing to do with me. Apologies, I’m working to get rid of it.
