Welcome to my Pink Chair Paintings Blog!
Pink Chair in Sunlight and Shadow (photo)
This is a blog about painting a pink plastic adirondack chair. I'll let you in on the story as I complete the series I am doing and show you paintings as they are completed. The chair represents my mother, Carolyn Elizabeth Pedersen Schulte, who passed on June 5th, 2011. She was a wonderful woman, full of love for everyone around her, and she loved this bright color pink. She was proud of me as an artist and would love what I am doing. I take the chair to favorite places of hers and to places or situations I know she would have liked. It is a way for me to grieve and to celebrate her life. I talk to her as I paint and make sure that she would want to be where the chair has been placed.
