It's done ~~ the zebra lives! One thing I learned; detail painting at the height of chair arms can be uncomfortable on your back. If there's a "next time," I hope to have a platform of some kind to raise the chair's height a bit.
To me, the chair has a "Caribbean," and somewhat "whimsical" feel; something that truly doesn't coordinate with the shop's style. Perhaps it will appeal to someone, besides me. I sure had fun painting it and, if nothing else, perhaps it will attract someone new into the shop ... or I can daydream of being in the Caribbean while viewing it, ;).
Wishing each of you a beautifully peaceful weekend filled with lovely moments with friends and family!
I love finding nostalgic beauty in the smallest of things, and using it to create something unique. While my current creative passion is mixed media, I have experience with quilting, painting, jewelry-making, and a form of faux stained glass on unique objects.
After many years of working in various office settings, I now have the privilege of working at a very unique gift, garden & design shop that provides unique inspiration for much of my work.
My family consists of my DH and two labrador retrievers, all whom provide me with unique experiences and much love.
