I have been planning to paint this scene for a while. Its challenge is in the rug. I wanted it to be the focal point, so I had to put enough detail in it. Yesterday I had a whole day off, and decided to give it a try. There is much to be desired. For example, I could have thought over the colors of the surrounding objects to create a better contrast. But on the other hand, this is my first painting with this large size, so I'm happy with it.
