I am an artist. This is the story about my current project - painting a pink plastic adirondack chair. The chair represents my mother, Carolyn Elizabeth Pedersen Schulte, who passed on June 5th, 2011 and 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.
