Monkeying Around, 30 of 30

Today I spent the morning at the Cincinnati Zoo acting as a Mentor for the Highschool Paint Out Competition sponsored by the Cincinnati Art Club. I was really impressed by the independence, maturity and talent of the participants.  While hanging out at the Japanese Macaque Monkey Island with my group I managed to also sketch these colorful creatures.  At least their faces and rears are colorful! Also known as Snow Monkeys, click the link for a short video of these fascinating animals in their natural hot springs.

I am really thrilled to have completed the 30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge.  Tomorrow, October 1, marks the beginning of INKtober. A daily drawing challenge. Today's painting can work for that as well! Here's the link to the suggested prompts for INKtober2017 . I'm probably just gonna wing it...

Please mark your calendars and plan to attend the upcoming Essex Studios Art Walks. We are open to the public the first Friday & Saturday (6-10 pm) of October, November & December.  I am in Studio 231. Come on out and explore the diversity of local arts talent available at Essex. 2515 Essex Place, Cincinnati, OH 45206

I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today!

Start where you are
Love what you have
Do what you can
