Crocodile Tears

I finished this painting yesterday for Art Gotham's Square Foot show. It was a challenge to compose something for a square canvas, and it was incredibly difficult to figure out how to lay down the gouache so that it didn't crack as it dried. I never had that problem using gouache on paper, so I think it has something to do with the Gesso-ed surface of the canvas. It took many tries, but I finally achieved this nice, smooth surface:

If it doesn't sell at the show, you'll eventually see it in the shop, and either way I'll be offering up a few prints of it.
Enjoy the weekend!
