I am working on animal paintings for all my grandchildren. Calder likes monkeys. It wasn’t until my daughter Whitney suggested I paint Spider Monkeys that I got inspired. So many monkey’s have a sad look about them. The active Spider Monkeys seemed to be having a great time together, just as my grandson does with his brothers and friends.
“Who’s on First” was juried into the 2014 “Animals” exhibition at the West Valley Arts Council, Surprise, Arizona, January, 2014. It was also displayed at the Arizona Art Alliance gallery holiday exhibition, 2013 and 2014.
