Favorite Pastime - original oil figurative painting

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!

One of the fun things I did during the weekend was roller skating with my kids. It was so much fun and I actually stayed upright the whole time! Watching all those people - mostly really young people, I might add - cruising gracefully around the rink or crashing into each other, plus every skill level in between, provided me with some painting ideas, which I will probably pursue when I finish the things I'm working on right now.

Today's painting is another one I did using my wonderful orange chair. It's just my favorite place to curl up with a book. This is a quickly done painting and I left lots of brushstrokes - my favorite approach. It's still very wet - almost too wet to photograph. It's 6 x 6" on board. Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Also, I have been 'tagged' - I think a total of three times, now - and when I get caught up, I'm going to do some tagging myself!

I love this! It's my favorite thing to do - sit in a nice comfy chair and read or play on my laptop. I love the texture.
