I don't like this piece tbh. Many times I wanted to just quit. Other times I'd be high or tipsy to try find some state enjoyable enough to finish this piece. Then I'd sober up and realise how awful the work I'd just done was, and would waste even more time fixing all my high/tipsy mistakes. But EVENTUALLY after about 70+ hours I got it finished because it is quite large (40"x30"). Based on a party I went to in Rio with samba feathers, cheeky monkeys that were the curious tourists, flying birds for the travellers and sense of adventure and snakes to represent the dodgy characters that were at this party. Obviously the limes and cup are to represent the Brazilian cocktail Caiprinha, which I consumed by the bucket load at this party. There are hints here and there of the Copacabana and other Rio land marks.
Some day I'll show a closer look at it but I'll just take this as the first baby step into the field. Plenty of room for progress and nowhere near perfect but just like anything or when trying to get anywhere you JUST HAVE TO START
