Old Birds

a 26" wide x 24" tall x 2" deep oil on canvas...about 90% complete. I started out trying to 'grid' this but got too frustrated so went freehand. For posting reduced to 750 pixels.

The relaxed feeling sure comes across. The muted colors really seem to work here to set a tone.  I feel more mellow just viewing this piece.  Thanks!

A lovely piece. Sadly if I tried getting in one of those deck chairs I'd never get out again without a lot of help.  the only enjoyment I get out of them now  is watching people trying to put them up, it amazes me how something so easy can cause some people so much trouble. I saw one family of three spend 20 minutes before managing to get one up the other two sat on them flat on the ground ...help was offered but they turned it down

Thanks so much Kathy, Stephanie, Marilyn and Paul!  The lesson learned Paul is that we all need to know and respect our limits!!!!!!
