monkey see-monkey do


This monkey was all BOTTLED up.

I love the painted objects that Eric Barclay makes. The other day I was rounding up the plastic bottles to take to the recycling center when I saw a little lemon bottle. It was calling to me. So I thought I would take a shot at painting it. Monkey see... monkey do. It was fun, but my acrylic paint was so old it was gummy and didn't flow on well. If I do this again, I'm gonna buy some fresh paint.

Hey all... thanks for all the nice comments. I appreciate them! Figuring out to make the cap into a fez was the key to it all. : )
