I love painting at the Firehouse in the mornings. Besides feeling fresh, one gets two sessions to work with the same model. Mark was a great model, although it was his first time modeling! In this painting, all of the items were there except I made the vase and flower taller, so as to break the wall horizontal line, and I added a red scarf on the chair. The intention was to create a narrative picture... The viewer makes the story. This piece is still in process, but I think it is still worth playing with.
