I made this custom handcrafted artisan clay tile, approximately 11″ x 9″, expressly for Hoot! — a gala event and auction to benefit Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest. The tile features a head and shoulders carving of Foxie Chimpanzee (depicted in shades of teal) against a background of bold brush strokes in vivid colors, among which are hidden two images of Foxie’s beloved troll dolls.
A limerick with a twist…
Oh dear, what a turn of bad luck—
In rhyme, my thought process is stuck!
It’s my fate to find pleasure
In syntax with measure,
‘Til I pull myself out of this…messy situation.
(Whew! I’m so relieved, I’m dumbstruck.)
