This One is For My Amusement I Mean My Muse I Meant. Is my newest oil painting. It is part of 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 consumed me as all of the paintings from this series do. I was stuck in constant thought, lucid dreaming over my muse. The pure energy and inspiration that her beauty is, 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 a dream... lost in thought as this beautiful piece of art was created.

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. They are being shown by inventation or oppointemnt only at this time at my Bucks county based studio Magoos Monkey Zoo. For more information on viewing any of my work contact me at
