Chaffee Chair..Ink and acrylic on canvas

This is a little different. The Chaffee Art Center is having a fundraiser of chairs painted by artist. My chair is an antique school chair, which I love. I didn't want to reduce the value of this antique by refinishing it, so I made a slipcover to look like commercial antique tarps from Europe. Then I added a couple of quotes and few little images and my name translated to French. I like the faded old look to the canvas and the chair under the cover maintained its integrity. I got the idea from some catalog that was selling pillows and bags made from these kind of tarps. #96


  1. You are so clever. I love your quotes, symbols, little painting and beautiful script.
    Someone is going to get a wonderful antique and a beautiful slipcover to protect it.

  2. Hi Christine,

    Thanks for visiting my site and your kind words. I'm working on setting up a list of links to great art I come across as well and would love to add your site. I love the bright colors in your paintings.
