His Old Chair

His Old Chair
Watercolour
30.5 cm x 41.5 cm
This old chair, battered, worn and comfortable it has born witness to a life.  Brought by a mother for her son for his first study room at school it has been with him ever since.  The boy grew into a man, life threw at him what it throws at most of us, he became a father and life moves on.  The chair sits, like a quiet guardian of a private history.  A lovely thing.  A possession like this is always a lovely thing and I really enjoy painting such a treasure.
This will be at the Watercolour and Works on Paper Fair.

This is beautiful Sarah. I like the perspective you have chosen and the choice of colours.
