Mediterranean Heat - 24x30, oil on canvas, $2000.00
This painting was inspired from a wee oil sketch I had done on a European trip awhile back. It was one of those paintings that took longer than expected to complete. As every time I looked at the sketch, I saw more little things to be added, such as poles, wires, SAT dishes and then the roof lines...abit of a nightmare! However, I eventually finished it! I thought to myself, it's a good painting and hopefully it will find a home. I never thought it would win 1st place at a recent Juried Federation of Canadian Artist's show, but it did.... So, maybe it is about being the turtle!
