Through all the years that I've painted chairs, I don't think I've ever painted them this small...besides possibly in a sketchbook. These are the cutest 4x4 inch interiors and so much fun to create while watching 'The Muskateers' with my daughter. It's been fun to shift back and forth between the chairs and canoes and working so small has made me reconsider some of the tools I've been using. It seems that almost everything I watch on BBC becomes my favorite new series...Downton Abbey, Grantchester, Endeavor, Broadchurch, Sherlock, Ripper Street, Foyle's War, Poirot, Father Brown, Dr. Who (though I lean heavily towards Matt Smith and David Tennat), and of course anything Jane Austen. I always enjoy being asked to create work from my past as I did love that series that spanned so many years. And though I am also very glad to have moved on to new work, it is nice to re-visit the work that really felt like it stared my life as an artist.
