Lovely Little Painting #4

" My Favorite Chair"
size- 5x7" with 1/8" thickness
100% recycled canvas board

I don't know if I've ever mentioned that I love Mod furniture. My own decor in my house is both modern and traditional, which I love. I usually flip through magazines and tear out pages upon pages to get ideas of my own home. I even keep them in a binder when I need a little inspiration.
So here is one of my favorite chairs of all time that I LOVE. I don't even own an Eames chair, but someday I definitely will. And I can just imagine Hawk loving it as well. With this painting I picked the colors based on Hawks coat. I think the mustard and mod green really make him pop out...don't you? I had fun with this painting also because I used to draw samples of furniture when I worked for the furniture company Art for Kids. I did the line drawings for them, among other things, and really learned a lot more on perspective drawing.
I've already put it into the shop and will be sad and happy to see it go. Sad because it's looking cool in my family room right now and happy that someone else will be enjoying it.

Have a wonderful day-Marnie V.

Hawk looks so serious, sitting on that chair like a little person, lol. Cloud does that too, in the car.
