That's funny Robert but I do understand - I think your paintings are beautiful but they are not quite rainbows and unicorns

Now you're making me want to paint a unicorn!

Here's a detail shot (a little bit of glare on the right side...)

! Hope to wrap this one up within a week!

Hi Robert, your monkey's always look so thoughtful and even wise. I know the end of their journey will bring a smile to our faces. Wendy

Thanks Wendy! I hope so!

Here's a rough sketch for an upcoming painting. The title came to me in a flash! "THE CAT AND THE VIBRATING TIKI"

Hope to start in a week or so!

Nice Mod sketch Robert, can't wait to see it unfold.

Sometime over the last few postings, the pendant on the monkey on the right turned blue. Is this somehow related to the mermaid's magic pendant?

Thanks Mike. No it's not....as usual I don't know what that thing would be!

or... "The Pussy and the Tiki Vibrator".

Sorry... sorry I couldn't resist.

Love how the painting is coming along I really like the use of color. The new one that is thus far sketched seems a departure from your usual style it will be very interesting to see how it turns out.

I'll ignore the first part of your comment

As to the second...I hope it will be a departure. It's easy to fall back to a comfortable style.

Ok, here it is! The color is a bit off in the pic. Hope to have it scanned in a week or so. On to the next one...

It's beautiful but I need to know the story. Here's my take = The fisherman's god is supposed to protect boat voyagers. But should he protect apes who have kidnapped the merchild, stolen the pendant of power and made off with the sacred statue of King Trident under the tarp? What a dilemma!

Nice! That does present a dilemma....but, my chimps are the good guys! That much I know. I always kinda thought that the chimps were protecting whatever is under the tarp and taking it somewhere safe. And that some unpleasant opposition is nearby....The child possibly represents the dilemma....I do like the Merchild angle though!

YOU MEAN YOU"RE JUST MAKING THIS UP AS YOU GO???!!!



Perhaps the chimps are rescuing the merchild and retrieving the tarped mystery object from the fishermen in the fishermen's boat. The god's dilemma is whether he should be faithful to his old masters (the fishermen) or to his new masters (the chimps)

Wait... that is a covered box? I thought it was the weird black obelisk thing from 2001 A Space Odyssey...thus the apes, and the little girl was an allegory for the civilization of mankind and how enshrouded it is in the past being carried by currents of fate.

But you know I think your explanation is much simpler.

Who said anything about a box?

I once took a screenwriting class at UM. I was interested in writing but the art always dominated my time. Maybe I should outline a story for this painting and see what happens....then maybe all these questions would be answered. I'm reading Edgar Rice Burroughs' John Carter series now....really enjoying it...maybe a very pulpy Tiki/Chimp saga...
