The finished magazine rack for the Chair Affair.


Both ends feature Matisse motifs  on the magazine rack panels– highly decorative.


The bottom shelf has a few baubles, ala Matisse.


The circling dancers had to be included somewhere: this is the top of the table.


So there it is — the total of my painting efforts over the last few months.

I like this table a lot — the table legs are perfect Matisse in their own right. Luckily it’s not a color that works in our house (we lean toward brick red accents), so I won’t feel too bad about contributing it to the Chair Affair. –June

For Portlanders: the Chair Affair auction is March 21, 2013. If you are up for a bit of quirky furniture, mark your calendars.

    The colour and style fit the shapes perfectly. It will make any room a cheerful place.

      Thank you, Olga. Matisse did all the hard work, so I just got to play. It was fun in its own way — pretty mindless, which may have added to the pleasure. Thanks for checking in.

    This would delightfully grace a canal boat (narrowboat) – it’s vaguely reminiscent of traditional “roses and castles” painting ( – or perhaps it takes it to an entirely new level … cleaner, leaner …

    So beautiful June. Congrats on being able to work.

    How very cool! I love what you did with this. The colors and motifs complement the shape of the piece and vice versa.

      Thanks, Lia. Those legs made me almost wish I were a woodworker. I originally painting them with a motif, then downgraded to a little bauble, and then decided they were most delicious on their own.

    June, I do so love what you did with this piece! The base color is a favorite…yet what really speaks to me is the motif with the circling dancers….good thing I do not live in Portland and won’t be coming out until late summer…I would find myself bidding heavily to have this beautiful piece with your artwork….mmmm, just mmmm.

      Well, Kristin, if it doesn’t sell, the Community Warehouse keeps it for their store — attached to the Warehouse. So, perhaps you’ll have a chance after all:-) Or, you could buy it via cell phone — hire a stand-in, etc, like they do at Sothby’s –snort– Thanks for checking in. If I ever see another table with legs like that, I think I’ll do one for our house.
