Portrait Of A Siamang Gibbon

I just finished this small portrait of an ape I photographed at the Columbia Zoo in SC. I don't usually paint monkeys or apes, but I just though this was such a wonderful position he posed in. I loved the way he had his hands and the back lighting was so dramatic. What a beautiful creature. He looked like he was deep in thought. Now I just need to come up with a title for the painting! 

Thank you for visiting!
