Red Geranium on Blue Chair

A blue chair sits on our little side porch and is our prop for seasonal decorations. In summer it's a potted flower, this year a bright red geranium. I love when the morning light of summer streams onto the little porch making patterns of shadow dance across the side of the house there. When I was thinking about making a painting from this image I imagined all sorts of ways to approach it. I thought about including marks of drawing, perhaps abstracting that scroll of the plant stand in the corner, adding pattern possibly with stenciled shapes, and on and on. In the end I just painted, and enjoyed finding the washy shadows and light filled leaves with my paint brush.
