Ready to hang if shipped within the USA; for all other destinations the artwork will be rolled into sturdy tube for shipping. A whimsical and introspective painting, with a pensive mood set off by bright morning light. Finely detailed and layered oil paints.
Based on an image taken by photographer Navil Zaveri of his wife, used with permission; the monkey was found on internet, I had to spend time redirecting its eyes to the woman to create tension between the figures. The play of light against the hair and the pink shirt and the shadows are interesting invite exploration. This painting was juried into the San Diego Museum Artists Guild annual show in 2020.
