Wild Thing

 I started painting this chair about 23433 months ago, and finally sat down to finish it tonight. 


 It started out a dark wood finish.

 After some sanding, I covered the wood with gesso, and then painted.

 My inspiration was the zebra fabric. It is fuzzy....really soft. So, what else could I do on this chair, but Wild Thing? Since this was a junk-picked chair, it came with a filthy damask cover on the seat and the top finials were missing. Other than that, the structure of the chair is good, no repairs needed.  Just painting.


 It turned out kinda groovy. I am not sure if it is wild enough or not. Do you do that thing where you finish a piece and then let it sit for a day or two before you look at it again? I think that is what I will do here.


Use your Vitamin C to repurpose something. It's a good feeling.
