Lonesome

I wanted to do a painting that illustrates the isolation I feel as someone who works alone. I spend a lot of my 40 hour a week job managing the studio by myself and it gets really lonely. I miss being around people and I also miss living in the same town as my family.

Not sure how I feel about this painting. Up until this painting I haven't really included any props or background items. I would like to do more of this in the future. I will probably end up approaching the empty couch concept again.
