The Empty Chair – Pastel — 1 Comment

  1. Hi Diane,
    I like your choice of colors. It adds to that sense of darkness and poignancy that you describe. It would be interesting to see this image in acrylics. The pastels lend itself well to that shadowy feel and softness in your painting. I like images using empty chairs. It makes wonder, who is coming or who has left. The other thing I wondered is about the woman herself. It almost looks like she is missing her left breast, perhaps from a mastectomy. Maybe it’s in the shadow, but that story would further add to the image too.
