Yesterday, I decided to do some more work on the painting in progress of the Liberian chimpanzees. Bow lay on his blanket while I worked. I am having trouble with the lower jaw of the chimp on the left. I cannot seem to get it quite right. When Bow saw that I had paused in my work, he asked to see it.
Bow looked at the painting for a moment, and then set to work licking the parts that needed a re-do,
I was not upset. The painting actually looked better after he had smudged out the offending part.
I'll try to do better next time. With an art critic like Bow in the house, my painting is bound to improve.
