How to Fold a Duckling

"How to Fold a Duckling"  (pastel, 5x7 inches)  click here to bid

This title came to me when I cropped this drowsy duck out of a larger photo. Despite the contortions, he looks so comfortable and self-contained and perfectly at ease that I felt he needed to be placed gently and precisely in the center of the painting.

(But hovering on the edges of my thoughts I couldn't escape the culinary imagery of flipping the little fellow into position with a spatula... shame on me?!)
