The Reading Chair

Libby Caldwell Oil on Canvas 9x12 $210 SOLD
A solitary golden chair in a used bookstore attracted my attention. Initial sketches included a child reading, but in the end, the empty chair was more evocative. A very limited palette allowed me to express the atmosphere I was trying to capture. The use of opaque paint contrasted with relatively thin glazes enhanced the feeling of depth.
