Words of late artist Frank Howell...I totally relate!

"There are few days off and no retirement from this entanglement of knowledge, passion and vision that will be molded and converted into creative expression. There are no guarantees of acceptance, understanding or reward, but...the noise inside the mind never ceases. I will paint today, tonight and for as many tomorrows as I am given..." Words of the late artist Frank Howell...

Crazy Monkey Paintings

I have wanted to paint monkeys forever!  My friend Debbie just returned from a cruise and she was telling me that on one of their excursions, a monkey had bitten her husband...and there you have it.  That brought the monkey thing back into my mind...Oh, you are probably wondering...her husband is okay, although she is still watching very closely for foaming at the mouth!  I decided to make a Mom and toddler monkey for the first painting, and that's the one I'm showing today.  The mom is trying to coax the child out onto the vines for it's "first swing"...
