Krista (Green Chairs)

30" x 40", oil on canvas, 2008


Detail.

Here's my beautiful wife, Krista, sitting across two green chairs. I wanted to mix things up a bit, so I made her portrait horizontal and added a second chair for composition's sake. That's also why her left leg is bent like that; it creates a nice rhythm as well as continuing a downward angular flow from her head to the top of the chair on the right.
