‘Art Rocks Brandon’ rocking chair auction


Rock on with an original painted rocking chair!
This vintage rocker
will be auctioned off
at the Town Hall
on August 23, 7 pm
in Brandon, Vermont.

There are 30+ artfully hand-painted
rocking chairs painted by members
of the Brandon Artists Guild.
Visit their website,
to see all of the rocking chairs.

This was my first attempt to paint on a chair (instead of painting about chairs).
I used my archive-quality oil paints and then covered the surface with a matte spar varnish.
To my eyes, the chair has echoes of Egyptian pharoah furniture —
but that may be hard for others to see.

I had a wonderful time painting this piece and am delighted to donate the work to benefit
the art teachers in the Brandon area.
