Gong Hey Fat Choy! Happy Chinese New Year and I hope the year of the monkey will be a splendid one! I took this photograph of a Francois' Langur monkey at the Los Angeles Zoo quite some time ago. I thought about using this one for my zodiac monkey painting, but I wanted to focus more on a face. He was definitely a cutey though! I hope that you will enjoy this photo!
I love to paint animals, you may see some of my finished paintings at www.lisarusso.com if you'd like.
