this is so easy to get into.
and what depth it seems to have for a flat surface!
the alternation of sunlight and warm shadowed areas is very delightful.

nothing in the coloration irritates me. everything is perfect.

Very nice. I love the color combinations.

It seems to me that this place is overcrowded with chairs, some tension that I canīt grasp. I like it.

May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you are dead.

yes but the tension floats on golden light. like honey sort of.

Great piece, I can feel the warmth of the sun. Well done.

This is one of those time when I wish I had the erudite arts vocabulary of a jerryw or a dornberg. I can't remember my eyes having so much fun in a pice without having to engage my brain to understand it. They bounce in rapid motion between the chairs in the foreground and then to the chair in the background and then to the delightful details and then back and all over again and always in the same pattern. It's like a perpetual motion machine. Beyond this I am kind of speechless and which I had someone else's eloquence but I am in total awe.

I should mention that as my eyes follow the chairs from the middle right distance to the middle left to foreground to the back left chair and around again, I get a totally naturally occuring, unforced, tour of the entire room and painting. Magical.
