I never found a bentwood chair that I didn't like. I enjoy those graceful curves that lead the eye right back to the chair itself. They are a joy to paint. For a while we had an avalanche of bentwoods at our house: thirteen came from one Thrift Shop, and I picked up another dozen later on in yard sales and Thrift Shops. Gradually we were aware that our house had 25 bentwood chairs in addition to the twelve matching chairs that came with the breakfast and dining room sets. We had chairs, there was no doubt about it, thirty seven of them. I was persuaded to sell six of the bentwoods. I caned the seats of a dozen of them and refinished the rest. We have only bentwoods now. This painting won a Blue Ribbon as well as a Second Best of Show Ribbon in an Art Show in June, 2000. -- Available
