Nate's Birthday Cake Monkey!

Nate's Birthday present, pen & ink with watercolor.

Sometime back he gave me the idea, the sketch I reposted below.


Hee, I have a suggestion but you'll hate me.

Of course I won't hate you.


Instead of a spaceship, maybe a chimp in a spacesuit doing an Atlas pose holding the cake up?

Don't you think that's a bit deep?
Not many people know who atlas was or what he was doing...

But regardless, you have a monkey in a space suit.

And so...I later drew it.

Of course it wasn't until about two weeks before his birthday that I decided painting it up would be the perfect gift for him. At least, I hope so!

He loves me...

Ah...the uncertainty of love.

A triptych panel.

He loves me..
The tentative start of new love.

He loves me not...
The insecurities surrounding new love.

He Loves Me!
The joy when love is declared.
