What’s An Aye Aye? In the Aye of the Beholder.

Aye aye acrylic on canvas 9 x 12 x 1.5 inches 2020 In private collection.

Aye finished a painting! Part of an ongoing series featuring Ugly Animals In Cute Outfits, this one features a monkey type creature called an aye aye in a lacy nightie.

Legend has it if you find an aye aye and it points its long middle finger at you, it means death and you must kill it but that’s totally false! This legend is in part reason for its near extinction. This one’s just being friendly, minding their own business and using their long fingers, decorated with golden rings, to skillfully play a violin in the moonlight.

Aye ayes live in the trees and feed on grubs using their long fingers to dig them out from the trunks of trees. They also feed on fruit which is my reason for the inclusion of the pomegranate and the orange at the bottom.

Sold this one in record time but prints are available online at Saatchiart.com and Society6 Thanks for your support! 🌚🎻🌙
