Painting - Promise
You've probably seen pictures of people standing around with their easel outside painting a beautiful ocean, tree, garden etc...I feel goofy doing that by myself. I've done it with classes and LOVE painting outdoors, but, like I said, by myself I feel goofy, especially with people walking by - most people don't know the process it takes to get to a finished product and are quick to judge. I guess I'm still sensitive to what others may think of my paintings.
Here is the finished product 9" x 12" Oil on Canvas. I call it "Promise".
When I started the painting I didn't know what I'd call it, all I knew is I loved these chairs. The chairs are waiting for two people to sit together and talk with one another. In my parent's backyard there is a fence behind the chairs that I took out, because I wanted to expand on the feeling that the chairs gave me. So, I started a dream-like path going to somewhere but nowhere we can see.
When it was done I thought about the Promise my husband and I made to each other, until death do us part, and until then we will be by each others side walking together down a path that we aren't sure where we are going but we'll do it together.
I hope you like it!
