New Outlook Teen Center fundraiser...Adirondack Chairs!

I am one of 14 artists painting an adirondack chair to be part of a fundraiser.  This isn't just painiting a chair in a pretty color.  It's a canvas for the artist to create a work of art.  The chairs will be displayed in various downtown locations for the public to bid on.  The coolest part of this is that a bunch of teen girls built the chairs under the direction of "Girls at Work", a NH non-profit dedicated to empowering girls through woodworking and carpentry.  My daughter was one of those teens.
I have in mind an owl and mountain/foresty scene.  After my husband painted two coats of Kilz, I painted two coats of gesso.  I'm now ready to begin the real painting....always an exciting yet frightening stage!
Stay tuned for an update at the end of the weekend!
