Endless Possibilitites

I love this work, I look at this set of dining chairs and see endless possibilities, with different options much like life. What and how we choose to take different paths in life affects how we look , how we are received, sometimes how “far” we go on the path. We started with a set of simple wooden chairs , we could have left them unpainted but we chose to paint. Now they could be distressed, ” roughed up ” , if you will, again much like some of people I ‘ve met over the years. But next , I will choose a pretty dress, I mean fabric , to cover the seats with so they look presentable! Life is full of endless possibilities, choose carefully!
