Hey Hey We're the Monkeys!

So one of the things I've been doing since I started playing hooky on a regular basis from the blogosphere is that I got into my painting again. The following pictures are the pieces I did for my GaSis's Christmas present this year. Normally, I wouldn't post pictures of a gift item until the person has received it, but since she presently has no internet access and absolutely no time to check more than her emails via the library (not that she ever checks my blogs anyhow...another of those that tell me they "didn't know" *sigh*), well there isn't much chance she'll see these.

She won't be getting all three monkeys in the trio above. I only posted the one in the maroon cap so y'all could see the front of the piece because I definitely needed to show the little extra detailling I added to the one in the blus cap. She's a bigtime Yankee's fan. I think I got that symbol right... not bad for freehanding it and not having a picture to copy off of. The monkey with the maroon cap has no detailling on his hat.

This cheeky little guy I put in her favorite color and painted the flowers in silver to give him some bling.

Cuuute! If I painted them, you wouldn't be able to tell that they were monkeys...

I really like the maroon hatted one hugging his banana!

Thanks Janis! I know she will because I've sent her stuff like that before.

BTDT Karla. Didn't work out. I figure if someone shows interest in those on my craft page and wants to buy, we'll talk turkey.

I bet you could Carrie. Leave 'em white, they still look like monkeys.

The smaller ones are approx 2.5"hX2"wX2"d, iggy. Yeah, those hatted ones turned out cute. I did one in maroon and one with bright red. The NY one will go to GaSis.

Thanks Franco. Nice to see a new nick in here.

Thanks Yaya, junyah and Queenie. Y'all should see what I can REALLY do when I'm really into paintin.

I've started working on Christmas presents for people too. Actually, the blanket I just finished is going to be a present for my SIL. I didn't mention it was for her in the post in case she happens to check my blog, but she's on it so rarely that I was pretty sure she wouldn't spot the post.

neglect and dusty at my place, too.
While I was working I had time to think and plan stories, posts etc while things were slow at my desk.

Now I'm on the go -- go go go.
And my mind just isn't engaged in the blog like I want it to be.

OMG those monkeys are so cute! If I collected them, we'd be talking turkey. I'd gobble, then you could gobble, then we'd gobble together. One of us would have to fluff some feathers though.

$.30 (I figure I owe you that much for how long I was away)
