a couple more funny little chairs

the butterfly chair

the cowboy chair

These are a couple more chairs that I was asked to paint for a charity auction. They are tiny chairs, only about 20 inches tall. A fun diversion, that I didn't really need.

snowbird #2

snowbird #2
pastel on paper 7"x8"


These little birds just have so much personality; they seem very curious. I like to capture their "pose" without too much detail. Maybe I'll try some more of these, moving on to a spring setting, but then they won't be gathering under my bird feeder right outside my kitchen window.
I took my 2 snowbird pictures to the local art league and both sold within a few days!

painted chair

birdnest chair
acrylic on small wooden chair

This is a chair that I painted for a charity silent auction. It was a challenge to figure out how to use all the different spaces. There's a lot of surface area on a little chair!
