This One is for My Muse I Mean simply for My amusement i.i. Meant. Is the latest addition to a long running ongoing series of oil paintings titled Monkey Hand. This is a study of the original painting: Yet Another Elastic Organ, which was created over twenty years ago now. This particular painting completly consumed me and my dreams, as all of the paintings from this series do. I was stuck in constant thought, lucid dreaming over my muse. The pure energy and source of inspiration that her beauty is to me, fueling my lucid dreams on. Leaving me in a perpetual daydream over this beautiful creature and her, big beautiful blue eyes. As I worked on this painting I was capturing all the moments of my time , I spent lost in my dream... lost in though... just lost as I created yet another beautiful piece of art work inspired by a beautiful creature. 

no. no.. no ... i said my muse i mean .. i meant.

Monkey Hand Yet Another Elastic Organ was painted in a 72 hour period of time . It was created when I was in my mid twenties in a single setting . I worked on it in a panicked state of mind . As I severed the thumb extensor tendon in a severe laceration to my hand as well as most other tendons in the thumb in my right hand . Being that I am right handed . I was very concerned that I was not going to be able to paint with my right hand. so used my left hand to create this and one other painting in that 72 hour time period . I have created many studies of this particular painting . I recently completed the next painting in this on going series of oil paintings. This painting is entitled Monkey hand ( This One is For My Amusement I Mean My Muse I Meant ) . This oil painting is on a gallery stretched canvas measuring 24 " x 36 ".I am currently also showing learned Anything : A study of Monkey Hand, and, Have You Learned Anything Yet : A study of Monkey hand both oil on streched canvas.
