This is the monkey who started all of this 'monkey business' for me. I didn't make this, I just took the photo. Some friends of mine had this little wooden sculpture sitting on their mantle and I was over there doing a house/dog sit about 4-5 years ago. This really 'spoke' to me (not in the 'Hi, how are you Linda' sense, ok? I'm not too nutty!) and I couldn't get it out of my head so I took numerous photos and started scratching out monkeys. Of course, none of them even look like this little fellow anymore...but there you have it, the original inspiration for my monkey madness! I can't even say anymore how many monkeys I have made. I just keep coming back to them and they keep coming out of me.
