One day in late summer of 2013 I stood on the deck and looked out for some small subject that would jump out at me and beg to be painted. I had been indoors for days due to rain and that afternoon when the skies cleared – there it was. This lovely little bench sitting in a patch of sunlight. I quickly grabbed my brushes and went to work. This is what I had after about an hour of painting. I thought it was just enough.
