Mango. mango, mango.

I think it's harder for me to paint a small painting like this than a bigger one because there's a finite space to paint within. I tend to over think and go over the same area over and over again.

I was feeling slightly nauseous before I started sketching at the Bloor Gladstone Library after work today and after I finished this spread the nausea disappeared. Something was reaffirmed today: sketching is my meditation.

Duck Duck Goose

Ottawa Airport Grounds Crew

 Final painting. Oil on cradle board. 11x17 in.
