Panel 3 already?

I know, I know. What happened here? Panel two isn't even finished yet, and here's another drawing on the chair? Well, it's like this: my son Zachary made me an offer I couldn't refuse. He volunteered to draw panel 3 for me today, so all I have to do now is paint it!

As you can see the painting I chose for panel 3 of my Faux Gogh chair is Noon Rest from Work, painted by Van Gogh in January 1890. I've always loved this painting. The intense colour, the subject matter, everything. Everything, that is, except for the man's face. I've often wondered if the man's face was ever finished or not. To me, it seems somehow of lesser quality than Van Gogh's usual standard. Not to worry folks, I shall try to improve upon it! *Wink*

Zach did an awesome drawing don't you agree? It's a very detailed drawing, so it's going to be fun painting this panel. I wonder if he'll offer his "sketching services" for the back of the chair as well! Can anyone guess what I've chosen for the back panel?

Zach did a wonderful job! I love this painting too. In fact, this is just what the Mr and I have been doing the last few days. We walk, we shop, we sightsee...we nap.
It's a tough schedule all right, but it's a sacrifice I am willing to make. It's all in the name of Research and Development. The inspiration is just ripe for the picking here, and when I get home to Wild Blue Yonder studios, I'll be a whirlwind of creativity.
This is the life.

Hello Bea,
I'm sure Bessie will be pleased to hear about all the in depth research and development you are undertaking while you're away. Who knows what she's doing while you've been gone.

And Kim, thank you for your kind words. Sunflowers you think ... hmm ... that would be a, shall we say obvious choice, but no, not this time round. Stay tuned.

If we're going by color, I'd guess Sunflowers for the back panel.
