A Little Nap Before Dinner

This is the second painting in a series about Abe the Chimpanzee. This time, Abe has caught the feast of a lifetime but he is very tired and wants to take a nap before dinner. Once again, Abe is dreaming about fruit, his homeland in South America, and of course...female chimps.

This is wonderful imagery. The chimp has an almost scuptled quality. The blue and yellow background creates a mysterious, mystical landscape. The bright orange fruit has a roundness that is recaptured in the blue balls. A very nice work. One small detail (about the text), chimps come from Africa, not South America. Perhaps the error was intentional, but I couldn't figure out why? Keep creating and thanks for your comments.

Artist Reply: Yes David, Chimps originate from Africa.
