let's go easy on Fri night. forget about Beckmann or the German expressionists, friends married, divorced, committed, always available and all far away.
Here's a nice easy piece that is also a miracle. I love doing this 'insiders' joke' bijoux. A monkey was a collector's item, but I am not a collector, so I just went with my gut and got it. Then when I cut out the Degas Ballet Class, I had this part left. The old guy you see was a very famous Professor at the time. In Portuguese you say about an expert that he is a 'macaco velho', an old monkey.
So here we go. Things falling in place once again. And the monkey is even wearing an appropriate attire!
