I started this painting as a composition depicting two people sitting on a roof but I soon got bored with that. The background and space reminded me somewhat of a large loft. One thing led to another and I finished the work. I love the airiness and atmosphere of the painting. It's very lighthearted but also, in my opinion, quite timeless and classical. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.
