Faux Gogh style for Silent Auction

This chair (#3) was painted for a silent auction that my son's university choir was hosting. And again, I chose a Vincent Van Gogh motif.

The first panel was another Starry Night.
On the cushion, I painted "Three Sunflowers in a Vase" (1888).
On the flip side of the cushion, I painted it simply green which makes it
appear like a continuation of the Starry Night panel.

At the very front of the chair, I paid tribute to
Van Gogh's "Wheatfield under Clouded Sky" (1890)


  1. So gorgeous!! I want a chair just like this! Oh wait....*ahem*
    Good job.

  2. I love your chairs! So beautiful. Hollyhocks that's what I would want painted on one. Although I'd have to have an iris side also.

  3. How very awesome, I am wondering if then the fabric gets stiff, and might be uncomfortable to sit on?

    How did this chair fair at your auction?

    You are very talented!!
