Oil 6"x8" Canvas Board
After work one beautiful day last month, I was dying to get outside to paint but I didn't really have time to drive somewhere and search out a good subject. So I set up my easel in the backyard and painted my two chairs in the late afternoon sun. This was just meant to be a quick study, and I didn't plan to post the painting. But after looking at it for awhile, I decided there was a freshness to the brushstrokes I really liked and maybe it deserved a little more attention. I left the chairs alone, but I thought whoever stopped to sit in them might enjoy a breeze off the ocean, so I added the view that I, myself, would like to see from my blue and yellow Adirondak chairs.
