This is kind of a goofy little painting that I was really just noodling around on.  It went through several changes over about a week of occasional noodling, and this is where it ended up.  I gave it that title because it reminds me of the little donkeys I saw in Morocco being led across the desert or in the medinas, stacked practically to the sky with all sorts of household goods, water, cans, people, rugs, etc.  Mighty little fellows!

Be alert to the senses. Elevate the ordinary. Art is about a heightened state of awareness.

  • There’s so much to see here. There are hints of aliens and tribal art, and pure playfulness.
