Red Chair, Contemporary Paintings by Amy Whitehouse


9" x 12" Oil, $175

It was so satisfying creating this red chair. 
I picture it in sumptuous velvet
inviting me to,
"Come, sit."

When I miss the ocean and can't get there, I paint the beach.
When I want to reupholster an old piece, and can't,
I paint a newly upholstered chair.

Painting = Happiness
