…and still more old paintings…

These two paintings are early favorites.  The painting of the chairs was done on paper, and it's one of the very first paintings I did in college, so it's probably 1991.  I was quite proud of it at the time, and I still find a lot to admire about it.  The biggest problem is my handling of the background shadow.  Regarding composition and paint application, I'm still pleased with it and sort of wish I still had it.  I dumpsterized it when I was moving to Wyoming.
The tree painting, dated 1991, is a counterpart to the tree painting that is currently hanging in Chris and Helga's house; they were painted at the same time.  I think this was first. I was also very proud of this one.  My boss at St. Matthews Blueprint bought it from me. I wonder if he still has it?
