    It does remind me of elephant paintings. Do you recognize this one being from a specific zoo? Ruby in San Diego did some paintings that have a similar amount of realism as that "palm tree".

    If a human did it, it is called abstract expressionism.

    I see frightened srilankan tourists running away from a murderous robot being controlled by a monkey using mind control. Ironically they're running for the safety of a tree which is full of bananas. Obviously this was painted by an elephant because any human pre post neo abstract modern vintage contemporary artist would know that bananas have no place in a coconut tree.

    The state of denial.
    Placing a label upon a work of art is hardly the relevant issue. This particular piece, to me, is a comment on the duplicity of life: the constant struggle, the burden of remorse, the endless parade of tribulation, yet the expectant nature of it all, as described by the sprouting of the lines from the central shapes. The urgent business of the piece is at odds with the cool calmness of the general palatte, though the artist expresses an anger that bubbles somewhere beneath the surface. Ultimately, the central theme of the piece is the eternal cycle of hope that springs forth from the fertile resolution of the human spirit. It is pain, it is pleasure, it is triumph in tragedy. This piece speaks to the very essence of existence, and I can barely look at it without weeping.

    Nah, I'm just ****in' with you all; that things sucks.

    Does this kind of thing sell?

    If so, my toddler can churn out about a dozen of these a day. Cha-ching!
     
  16. Lies and slander! It's clearly a weed of some kind!
     
  17. Don't know much about paintings, but I'm sure someone serious could analyze it and give it a real value.
