Storyline

Monk is bored. Dr. Kroeger suggests he find a hobby. Monk is called by Stottlemeyer to investigate a man who was killed while trying to break into a junkyard. The owner has no idea why the guy broke into the yard. Natalie suggests he try painting and the owner says he has all the materials he needs. So Monk tries but doesn't exactly do a good job. But a Russian shows up and buys the painting he did and is willing to buy any others he does. Monk learns that the owner of the junkyard was killed. Stollemeyer learns the only thing taken was part of his log book so they find the guy who works for him to find out what was in the missing pages. And the Russian again buys Monk's paintings and Monk can't help but notice something odd about him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Art it ain't
30 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In attempting to solve the murder of a junkyard owner, Monk takes up painting. Don't ask. A stranger then appears (the wonderful Peter Stormare) and offers Monk substantial sums of money for his attempts at art. Monk then begins wearing a matching beret and artist smock to his art classes. While it may be easy to spot the bad guy, figuring out the whys and wherefores of this convoluted mystery will have you doubled over with laughter or in disbelief, or maybe both. Monk's art teacher is archly played by Victoria Tennant, whom any film buff will instantly recognize from years past. And watch the transformation of the goth girl in Monk's art class from cynic to sycophant as Monk keeps racking up sales of his scribblings. She's a hoot.
