Collectif Creativity: 19Jul2022

by Brenda Sutton Mader, My Winter Project

My pottery studio closes down each winter in Alexandria, but the creative juices still flow. This past winter I focused on painting four Adirondack chairs purchased for our new fire fire pit. I saw them as a blank canvas and decided to make them look inviting.

This was a fun project but . . . no commissions please, just something I enjoy doing for myself!
