Ashley in Red


Ashley is lying back in an old recliner. Her striking red dress would have been compromised by the maroon color of the chair had I not placed the white lambskin between them. The view is from slightly above. A more level view would have again offered too much red chair in a painting that is very red already. I used to take studio naps in that recliner until one day it collapsed with me in it. I'm still looking for a replacement.

  1. The fabric and the fur are so real in this painting.
