In Paris, the men play chess in the park no matter what the season. In this painting, derived from a photo I took in Luxembourg Garden several years ago, I isolated this one gentleman from the rest of his cohorts so that I could concentrate on his dedicated focus. I allowed myself freedom with colors, on both his figure and in the background, to create movement, emphasis, and atmosphere.
