P.S.


As a follow-up to yesterday's post, I wanted to give credit where credit is due. The chair that inspired my rendering was none other than Chapman Radcliff's "Kelly" wing chair. As many of you know, Ruthie Sommers is the owner of LA based Chapman Radcliff and is definitely one of my favorite decorators. She designed this gorgeous piece that I couldn't resist painting. I also wanted to thank my friend, Courtney Barnes of StyleCourt for posting my painting yesterday as part of a post on chinoiserie chairs. Courtney is like a walking encyclopedia of design knowledge. If she doesn't know the answer to your question or the origins of a piece in a photo (which is almost NEVER) she will not rest until she discovers it!
