Orange Chair - original oil figurative painting by Connie Chadwell


Now that the weather is warming up, I have a tough time staying out of the yard.  There's so much I want to do - especially before the temperature reaches triple digits!  I decided, though, that the other three blueberry bushes will have to wait until tomorrow to get planted.  I just have to paint or draw every day - a bit of an obsession, probably -  and I'm so lucky to have the time to do it.  This 7 x 5" painting is oil on panel.  I've painted the orange chair many times.  It's always been here in this house and I've always loved it - great for curling up in with a good book!  Preferably a mystery.

I understand the need to paint. I also have a plot of land I grow vegetables in and I should be thre more often than I am but the smell of paint wins more times than I should admit. I like the intimacy of this painting and some of your others are equally inspiring keep up the good work.
