"Story Time", oil on masonite, 9 x 12" (23 x 30cm), Private Collection

This is one of my all-time favorite pieces.  I called it story time not so much because the woman is telling the kids a story, but because I was telling myself a story while painting it.  My first intention was to display a corner of a garden, however, when I was finished with the flowers, I thought it might be nice to add a woman sitting in a chair.  She seemed lonely, so I added one child and then another.  All the time I was painting, I was making up a story in my mind and having a ball at it.
