    Wow. He even looks as if he's critically surveying his work.

    It isn't the year of the monkey yet, though!

    What's really sad is that my first attempt at brush calligraphy showed about the same level of skill as Jonao does.

    I have a vietnamese potbelly pig. Although I have not trained her to paint, I did see a pig at the county fair that was doing paintings for sale. A pig will do just about anything for food.
