THE LATEST MEMBER OF THE FAMILY....


Gouache/ink on Arches 9x12
This is the latest addition to my ever-growing chair collection. I painted this lady in red with a complementary green cushion. Some of you may recognize this beautiful chinoiserie chair. Let's see if you design sharpies out there can guess it's origins?? When I first saw it, I knew I just HAD to paint it at some point. It is now available for purchase on my Etsy site.
*As a footnote, I would love to invite some of you many lurkers who I KNOW read this blog EVERY day to leave a comment. I would love some feedback from you. Let's liven things up a little....
