BMonkey Business
(2011)

This is the second in a series of two paintings for the "Monkey Business" show at the River Oaks Art Center. This monkey is beautiful, but aggressive. It holds a deadly gun and appears ready and able to use it. Men are, after all, just primates with guns. If only our destructive passion could be tempered. Perhaps someday we will beat our swords into plowshares and our spears into pruning hooks
