10 x 8 Oil on Gessobord
I really wanted to sit in the rocking chair next to that window filled with geraniums. Unfortunately, no one offered me the chance, so I painted it pretending all the while that I WAS sitting there. That's the great thing about painting. The artist can place himself (or herself) in the scene without leaving the studio. Imagination is a wonderful thing. As Twyla Tharp said "Art is the only way to run away without leaving home."
