Red Rocker

24" x 32" oil on canvas

This white rocker (in red) sports a seat caned by my dad, a skill he learned after his retirement.

Benjamin in Blue

24" x 36" oil on canvas

My great grandfather Benjamin V. Marsh, sat in this chair at every meal.  This chair was for him, and there was another one that my great grandmother liked to sit in.  When these chairs went to live with my parents, my father sat in this one and my mother sat in the other.  His and hers.  I'll have to paint hers.
