Still life in oil: chess piece

Knight Play©2010 C.L.Burgess oil on canvas 6x8 sold

This little piece has special significance for me. My Dad passed over 14 years ago but I miss him still. Part of the fond memories I have are watching him play chess and trying to teach me while I was playing other things. Now, my son has his grandather's chess set and the chessboard he made for the pieces.
So, in a way this is a portrait of me and Dad.
Inspiration is given by the muse in strange ways. Check.
