While working on this one I had an unexpected aromatherapy session! I was transported back to when I was a young girl pushing whole cloves into the rind of an orange to make a fragrant pomander. Sometimes they were rolled in cinnamon as well, and hung in a closet making everything smell wonderful while they dried and shrank. The fragrant clove oil in my paint had joined the orange smell to bring back this memory. I hadn't thought about those pomanders in years! The therapy session produced a painting I'm quite happy with!
