bill’s chair


oil on canvas

in the artist’s private collection

I painted this funny Biedermeier chair while spending
a week by myself painting at a cottage in Lake George.

The day began as a rainy one, and I searched around
for something interesting to paint in my new surroundings.
As I stared that this chair, the sun burst out and the shadow
cast on the wall perfectly expressed my mood. This remains
one of my favorite paintings.
