jungle painting

Sin Miedo al Verde II, acrylic on canvas, 18"x15", 2021

Panamá

Painting 2/3 of the "not afraid of green" series.  Encouraged by the first one, which was sold at the Kiwanis auction, I was excited to make the next one more than twice the size.

It's also very important for me that all of my paintings are quite different from one another so ​I introduced some blue tree trunks this time.  The monkey was actually painted in the same colors but since they are such different monkeys I don't think it's perceivable at all.

Painted from a photograph I took in Chiriquí.  See it at the bottom of the gallery below.  I mirrored the monkey in the interest of composition, which altered the direction of the branches.  I could have made an effort to make them a little more accurate but frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.
