I completed this painting yesterday just in time for Gallry Night in Mineral Point (WI) this Saturday. I worked on making the receding edges soft and the illuminated ones sharp. I like particularly the sheen on the fabric of the chair arm and the blend of soft colors in the hands.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears the human soul!
