Wanna Band Aid?

Wanna Band Aid?  6" x 8" Oil on Board

I was in Bali over the holidays and one of the things I found most intriguing were the monkeys.  I could watch them forever. They are also very mischievous! They will take your sunglasses, your purse, anything they can grab.  I even saw one take a blue flip- flop off a girl while she was walking! Further down the path I saw the other blue flip-flop already discarded.  Do you think it was the color that the monkey liked?
Actually they are hanging out and picking pockets so that you'll trade them food to get your possessions back.  Very industrious!

Back Alley

Back Alley  6" x 8"  oil on board

When I'm in France, everyplace I look I can find something that motivates me to paint.
Does anyone else have a special place they just "click" with

Calle de Calle Lillies

Calle de Calle Lillies
6 x 6 oil on board

Lately I've been in my studio just playing around and experimenting.
I spent the entire week doing nothing but applying lots and lots of thick paint.
You never know what's going to happen later from that special creative time without the pressure of finishing a painting.
Does anyone else do that?
