Bill's chairs

Two recent chair paintings done last summer at our home in Metis-sur-mer. The chairs are always there, on our lawn facing the St Lawrence River, and have been a steady source of inspiration for me for many years. I see them as a still life, set up outdoors in a familiar landscape. I never tire of painting them. The experience is always new and fresh. 

The chairs were built for us, by Bill Pawley, a very good friend. Bill died unexpectedly last week. He will really be missed.
