You may have noticed the beginnings of some chairs in an earlier post about my healing process from hand surgery. Well those chairs are still coming into being. Thought I would give you a more frontal view of their initial layout.
Sometimes I wonder why in the world did I take on so many chairs?! Too many criss-crosses and overlaps going on! But there is something beyond just wanting to paint chairs that look like chairs. There is a 'feeling' that is also being captured - a feeling in these chairs and some kind of feeling in me. Will be interesting to verbalize them both as this painting evolves. I know that a 'feeling' happens with all my paintings when I think they are done being worked on. But as complicated as this painting is I'm glad there is this 'feeling' at two levels happening. Otherwise I don't think I could just paint these chairs to just be chairs. That'd be b-o-r-i-n-g!
