At long last, after many travails--particularly that awful thing with the water buffalo and the kumquat, he'd be waking up screaming for years after THAT--the hooded donkey had arrived, his goldfish at the ready. Nothing could stop him now! Acrylic on clayboard, 11 x 14. (Love, love, LOVE the clayboard.) I keep painting these little hooded ungulates--unicorn, donkey, t'occasional random tapir. They appeal to me for some reason. On this one, I was playing with a new rock technique in clayboard, which I was very pleased with. The composition is based on a fairly common wildlife art technique--you use a big expanse of rock, and all the cracks in the rock lead to the focal point--which is something I always wanted to try. (And don't ask what he's doing with the goldfish. If I knew, I'd tell you. I don't always get the whole story of my paintings.)

The Goldfish is obviously a Hyper-intelligent Pan-Dimensional Being with physic abilities who is guiding the Donkey on his quest and providing the Audience with colorful banter. Duh. 18
