The Inspiration

When I was a little girl there was nothing I wanted more than a chimp.  Not sure where that desire came from, perhaps from watching Tarzan, but I never did get a real chimp. I did get a stuffed chimp but we all know that was not the same.

I fell in love with this chimp, he is an older chimp and when I painted him I kind thought this is how old my chimp would probably be if I had got him when I was a little girl.

This painting was juried into the Escondido Municipal Art Gallery and also the Del Mar Fair Fine Art Exhibit in 2017.

This painting received an honorary award from the Escondido Municipal Art Gallery.
