OMG! An outraged baboon sits amongst a hand stitched leafy nest with a naughty monkey for company!

This painting is guaranteed to raise a smile and is chock full of hand embroidery and fun! Perfect for that little monkey in your life. Or maybe just a banana loving loon?! :)

I painted this piece with watercolor paints and then hand stitched a wild wacky scene of bananas, leaves and graffiti!

I've kept the painting free and loose to keep the colours fresh and bright, sketchy pencil marks are also visible. Colours are shades of dark blue grey, turquoise, purples and greens with vibrant reds and yellows.

Mrs.Baboons story:
I'm a little bit scared of baboons so I painted this to conquer my fears and I loved the expression of this particular one!

Mrs. Baboon has poked her head out of her nest of leaves and is aghast to see that someone has eaten all her bananas...

"OMG!" she screams!

*I've hand stitched her exclamation of shock in an old school graffiti style using a wide variety of stitches and threads

*Banana skins are hand stitched in vibrant yellow sliks and thread with metallic gold that glitters when the light hits it.

*Her nest is a mass of hand stitched and layered leaves in a variety of green silks and cottons

*The banana skins have been flung all over the place by a wee monkey who very rudely is taunting her with an old Cockney music hall tune, hand stitched lyrics read:

"Oh yes we have no bananas! We have no bananas today!"

The work is on a gallery wrapped canvas and is ready to hang. The canvas also has staple free edges so no framing required. The embroidery and painting continues over the edges of the canvas.

This piece measures:
13cm x 18 cm
5 x 7 inches
