Luckily, artist/friend Marie e-mailed me about ...
what "wood thing" I would bring to paint?
I hadn't read that far, so I hunted up my $2. chair.

I bought this sweet little chair 20+ years ago for $2 at a sale.
And I want to qualify that I like old looking stuff.
And, I usually don't like old stuff painted!
But I needed something & it's been hidden in my closet.

So in 91 degrees at the 10:30AM start, we met outside under a tent 
with a merciful breeze to learn Fleur attributes & techniques.

Tanita Ribola

And, what a pleasure to hear Tanita's Italian accent ...
and look at that face!

We picked our colors and got to work.
A great color selection, & the paint is wonderful to work with.

My $2 chair got brick orange, yellow-ochre & turquoise paint.

Shanda & Marie in chair jail?

At the end, I owe thanks to Shanda & Marie ...
who both helped get this little chair varnished in time.
And thanks to Tanita, Fleur & ASW too, this was all free!
This is how my chair looks now, but a future blog will
show planned additions. Stay tuned?

A smile for Sunday ...
