Artist's description:

“Lazy Afternoon” was a study in the importance of shadows. One relaxing summer day I found myself with nothing to do but lay in the dabbled shade of our big cedar swing. As I was reading I noticed the interesting shadows thrown by the various cross pieces of the swing and the trees overhead. When I started the sketches for this painting I first drew in the major elements of the swing, the book, and the legs. It wasn’t until I added the oddly shaped shadows that the piece started to come to life. Without them, the scene looked quite dull. I was reminded of the Impressionistic school of thought that is basically, “light is everything”, or in the instance of this painting, the absence of light.
