Thank you

I thought it would be cool to post the first Welcome to My Jungle so you 
would know why I titled this new painting Welcome to My Jungle Again.
My collector that purchased the first one jumped right on this new Jungle
painting  to have the pair. They look so amazing together. I am so happy
that she was the one that got this painting for her collection.
Thanks again Eva.

I loved to do puzzles when I was a kid.
Once in awhile you would see a photo with
several hidden elements in it that you had to find.
I would not give up until I found every single one.

I really like Henri Rousseau and his funny animals
and jungle paintings. I did a lot of research on his
work for this composition. See if you can find the 35
animals that are in this painting. I had a blast painting
this one but with all of the details it was never ending.

Whom ever purchases this painting will get a diagram
of where to find all of the animals. This is a fun painting
for everyone, kids and adults and surely a great
conversation piece.
Have fun!

Here is the list:

White Bird
Robin Bird
Indian Flute Woman
 3 Butterflies
3 Lions
4 Monkeys
2 Raccoons
2 Mice
2 Parrots
Big Bird

Henri Rousseau: Jungles in Paris was a visually exciting, important exhibition. A collaboration between the Tate Modern, the Musée d'Orsay and the Réunion des musées nationaux, in association with the National Gallery of Art, this was the first Rousseau retrospective in the United States since MoMA's show in 1985, which had a quite different agenda. That exhibition and its catalogue focused primarily on Rousseau's influence on vanguard artists of the twentieth century: he was the rebel, the outsider who represented purity and instinct. Now that Rousseau's place in the modernist pantheon has been secured, it seems, we can cast our nets more widely to consider other issues—of audience, politics, and history. In this most recent exhibition, selected by Christopher Green and Frances Morris with Claire Frèches-Thory, there were certainly references to Rousseau's modernism and to his outsider status—labels told us that certain works "caught the attention of the avant-garde"—yet the focus was not so much biography or canonization, but contextualization. What was being contextualized, specifically, was the artist's jungle paintings—the densely packed, enigmatic fantasies painted mostly between the years of 1904 and 1910. The jungle pictures were understood here not merely as one artist's quirky fixation, but as part of a broader cultural phenomenon, namely the French fascination with exoticism during the nation's colonial expansion.
