hi everyone! this is my first project post in the housewares section, so please be gentle
this project was something that i did in my art class last year at the community college. our class was asked to paint chairs to be auctioned off for habitat for humanity, and our professor wanted us to all use the same theme. so she asked us to use the word chair in the themes. someone did chairy and painted cherries all over it, someone else did chairloom and had some celtic designs to look like an heirloom, someone else did chairub and glued wings to the back of it and painted a cherub on the seat. i decided to do chairokee because of my indian heritage.
the woman who won the auction sent my chair to her brother in new mexico who is studying native american rituals and religion and sent me a very nice thank you for making something that highlights and celebrates my heritage. it made me feel warm and fuzzy hehe
i was really happy with how this turned out, and was sad that i wasn't able to keep it for myself lol
but it went for a good cause "chair"okee front
