Created on a 7" tablet in a car park waiting for Mrs Monk.
This and other artwork created on a 7" tablet in a car park waiting for Mrs Monk, or maybe on a phone in an Art Gallery, or another place where a finger on a black mirror was the substitute for a brush or a pencil on paper or canvas.
Digital art has its shortcomings but maybe the shortcomings are a spur, an extra challenge for the artist, something new, if not yet the new shock of the new.
9 Mar 2018 Update
Mrs Monk bought a Dog picture from a charity shop with the intention of over painting the canvas it was printed on.
I suggested she took the dog for a walk about town and take a few pictures in different locations.
This was in 1995 and before photoshop was a verb.
A year or so later Tracy Emin upped the concept by taking her embroidered chair about the world and as far, and as grand, as Monument Valley.
I have since photoshopped the Dog to a few other images by way of referencing the earlier images.
The Daily Mail was livid when it was disclosed that the Queen's private estate, secretly invests vast amounts of cash in offshore tax havens.
Will the Queen mention this in her Christmas Day address
to the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth?

Recent Pictures of Leigh upon Sea and thereabouts by Monkfry.
Pictures are added and subtracted from this collection
from time to time.
The concealment of identify is the theme
that connects this set of pictures.
It occurred to me that we often find ourselves looking at the ground
and such views turn into pictures that find their way onto Flickr.

Mrs Monk has many Sketch Books.
I have stolen her pictures and publish her best
on Flickr by way of provoking ever more.
Any body shape or gender may apply.
She is a genius and very demanding
as all geniuses are.
Must be willing to listen and acquiesce to Saramo's capacity
to take everything and nothing seriously in equal measure.
Don't ask me
I married her..

Captured by Monkfry,
Pictures of People are added and subtracted from
this Flickr collection from time to time.
Sometimes an Image says more for it's brevity than
by its sophistication, real or supposed.
