Artist's Description

Ok. This is portrait of me, painted this year.

Some history: In Australia, many years ago, they introduced the Cane Toad… to eat and obliterate a beetle?(please correct me if I have this fact wrong). The thing is, the cane toad is now a larger pest than the beetle originally was.

This painting: I was born. Grew a little. And found myself with an elephant friend. (Symbolic – the elephant never forgets). This was great until I realised how destructive it is walking through small apartments and life with a growing elephant in tow… She was also depressing. She wouldn’t and couldn’t let me forget. So, I went and got myself a monkey… to chase off the elephant. But like the cane toad, the monkey thrived, fed the elephant and they lived happily ever after. :)

Till now. The monkey resents the fact that I want him gone and is growing vicious. And the bloody elephant is whining off in the distance. I am moving on. Without them. But I painted them as a reminder.. to maybe just be happy with a cat. miow.

This is a large painting. Acrylic on canvas. Thanks.
