As much fun as I had with painting “The Last Download”, I was looking for another theme to tie in with DaVinci’s Last Supper. When Creature Feature Gallery announced a sanctioned show based on all the “Planet of the Apes” movies, I knew I had my theme. When I was growing up, I can remember watching the first Planet of the Apes movie. I was too young to see it in the theatres in 1968, but our local library had a movie nite, and I got my chance to get addicted. The end of the movie with the Statue of Liberty sticking out of the sand as a ruin freaked me out, so I had to incorporate it into the painting. That, and a little bit from every “Ape” movie since!
