In Gloria's Garden

Oil on Gessoed Masonite, 6"x6"

In Gloria's Garden

I'm a chair.

In my proper place
Birds and bees and flowers
Greet me

I've been sat on, rained on
And stepped on.

I'm properly called an antique.

Don't worry and no offense;
Call me anything
I'm easy.

My friend Sven and I went to Gloria's house to paint last Thursday. In her courtyard,I painted the chair and the flower pots, but Sven ended up painted me while I was painting. Although the setting was very pretty, I had to simplify the background to not fight with the chair. I like the structure of this painting and it had been a good experience.
