Pretty Eyes, my sock monkey

I was a young child when someone gave me this sock monkey.  I thought his eyes were just about the prettiest things I'd ever seen.  Hence, his name, Pretty Eyes.  I can't say why, but he sits on one of my drafting tables where I paint.  I actually painted him once before in a painting called "Pretty Eyes and Mouse go Fishing".  I have photographed him in various positions and hope to paint him many more times.
