Meet Charlie

I have started a new mat to play with the contrast of light and dark.  My theme with this rug is "where there is light, there is dark."  The subject is a chimpanzee who lives at the Houston Zoo.  His name is Charlie.  I shot a good photo of him a couple of Christmases ago when the exhibit first opened.  I have wanted to hook his face since I took the photo, but haven't been able to get around to it until now.  The piece will be 18" by 24" when complete.  It is called Charlie and is my second mat in the Faces of the Houston Zoo series.  Jonathan was the first.
