Outside of Salida Colorado is an old homestead that today is preserved as an historical site. We were painting on the grounds when I noticed through the window this isolated old rocker in front of a window looking out to the front yard. When the docent arrived she was disappointed when I requested she not sit in the chair while I finished the painting. "It's my favorite place to sit while I'm here." I'm sure she wasn't the first to find comfort in this piece.
