Sadly, I have no idea when I painted this picture..
I’m guessing that it was 2012.
But it’s just a guess.
And I have no idea where this place is.
Neither do I know who the woman is in the painting.
She could be my wife or a complete stranger.
I should have kept some record of my work such as a pencil date on the back of the picture and a brief note about the place or person.
But in my salad days I was just focused on painting.
And that was a wonderful freedom.
And hopefully such deep focus made me a better artist.
But later on, it caused a big conundrum when it came to organising my work.
Because I didn’t record my artwork.
And also because I have painted a lot of pictures.
I think that I presently have about a 1000 paintings even after throwing many paintings away.
Anyway, I found this small painting while I was attempting to organize my artwork.
And what I can say about this picture is that I like it.
And this is why it never got thrown away like so many other paintings.
I love the shape of those chairs and the soft atmosphere of this scene.
The colors are also pleasing with the contrast of a warm brown and a cool blue.
Perhaps I should call this painting “A mystery woman in a coffee shop”.
What do you think?
What title would you give it?
If you can think of a great title I will let you have the painting for half the price.
