Chair 2: Dawn panel
The second chair I painted, I painted for our home. I thought it appropriate that I do a tribute to Van Gogh's paining, Enclosed Field with Rising Sun, 1889.
I call it Wheatfield's Dawn.
Bright, sunshine-y colours are used on this panel ~ one simply cannot sit in this chair and feel sad.
It's always fun to watch a person who hasn't seen this chair before. They always pause and then ask: "Can I sit in this chair?" When they find out they can, it always brings a big smile to their faces. I like that moment.
