This Old Couch - 12 x 12 inches - Oil on canvas

This couch proudly sits in the main hall at the Parish Center for the Arts in Westford, MA. I'm not sure how old she is but she's been around a very long time. A few years back, she was sent out for repair and new upholstery. She hasn't missed a concert, art reception or dance since.
I decided that painting the entire couch didn't really add anything more so I cropped the image and made sure that the center "crown" was included to show the beauty of the carved wood. I also took a bit of artistic license and made her color a bit brighter and shinier than it really is.
