Backyard Gathering, an oil painting on panel, is based on the backyard patio of the house I used to live in with my not-anymore boyfriend. I was in love with that space and spent many evenings there with friends enjoying wine and snacks. The painting, heavily influenced by Pre-Raphaelite works, features made-up friends playing medieval-era instruments, a hidden bicycle, and a little chicken in the shadows. The twinkling lighting, jovial feeling and tiny details invite the viewer into the party.
