Yesterday my neighbor friend and fellow art lover popped in for a visit.
I was giving her a tour of our nearly completed art loft and showing her the paintings I had so far selected to hang there
Even though 822 is much bigger in square footage from our last home, there is less wall space because it is so open. This leaves me the difficult task of hanging less art that B and I have collected over our years together
As she asked about this painting, it made me fondly remember giving it to B
Valentine's Day several years ago
It is painted by
A Gorilla...KoKo the gorilla
This is not just any gorilla..she has been taught sign language by Drs. Penny Patterson, Ron Cohn and the late Barbara Hiller, via a grant from the National Geographic Society.
This picture is a numbered print, painted
and signed by Koko when she was asked to paint
it made the A list
