After weeks of completing this piece it seems now when I look at it again that the composition is crowded. There are things that help with that though. The sewing pattern lines draw the eye as does the "flower" figure in the upper right. The chop mark also becomes more of a part of the total composition balancing the heaviness.
Just so you know, even though this is the monkey series, there is no monkey in this piece because it got covered up. Yup! Sometimes one has to let go even if it means no monkey!
