In my Grandma’s living room sat a huge, overstuffed, well-worn and faded, red chair. It could easily hold Grandma and me or me and a couple of cousins. In this chair books were read, crossword puzzles were tackled, “As the World Turns” was viewed, and children were comforted. That “cushy” chair, I am sure, was the beginning of my love affair with chairs– one of the most poetic pieces of furniture. Their design possibilities are endless, their purpose clear and usefulness assured.
Take a look at this terrific red chair. Definitely not quite the “snuggle-up” chair like Grandma’s, but it does seem to be a good place for the occupant to do a bit of dreaming.
I would love to hear about your favorite chair (or equally special memory). Better yet–send a photo!
Open Studio in Santa Cruz County — Coming Soon
Today I’m helping to prepare Open Studio Calendars and Maps for delivery to the various outlets. What a terrifically well-run organization. I am honored to be one of the artists featured in this event. My postcards are ready for mailing. If you don’t receive one, it just means I don’t have your address. Please email me with your information so that I can personally invite you to events. And stop by my studio to say “hello” on the second or third weekends of October.
