Illustration Friday - 'Chair'

I'm not sure if this fits into the category of an 'illustration' or not but it's the first thing that came to mind when I read this weeks category. I painted this chair quite a few years ago and I've never known what to do with it in our house. Now it sits perfectly in Kezi's room! All illustrations are original, done in acrylic paint. You can see where my dog used to jump up on it. I've considered fixing that but I've decided to leave it as it gives the chair a history and character. Oh, and this chair already had history, it came from my Nanna's house!

Thank you all for your comments, I'm glad you like it! I don't feel so creative sometimes but I think that's a lack of energy at the moment from the bubba! LOL

Dang, it's a whole comic rights under you...That's kick ass!

I tried to do that once on my old man's lazy boy when I was 9.

Long story short...It still hurts when I sit down on chairs
