The Monkey - Zodiac Series
Oil on 9'' x 16'' canvas paper
Created in 2023 as part of my 'Zodiac Origami' series: twelve 9x12 inch oil paintings, one for each of the animals in the Chinese zodiac. The Monkey is shown in bright white contrasting a blue background and the Chinese character for monkey in red above it. The references for the series were made by me, with paper and a bit of alone time in the studio, as a way to unwind and focus after a painful period in my life and return to a hobby from my youth.
