Lots of Dots

Dottie Wing

My 2010 chair started with many different color combinations and designs. Several shades of yellow, green and pink changed many times before arriving at today’s finished chair. Leg designs were also painted and repainted before I settled on a pattern.

Dottie Wing's chairThanks to Linda Weide, I discovered a Mackenzie-Childs catalog. Linda shared several ideas with me. With Linda and Phil Clonninger’s (our resident artist) encouragement, I created my first chair. This year, I wanted to again use similar colorful patterns to make a chair that would make people smile. I think this chair accomplishes that.

I hope this chair is a cheery addition for tonight’s winner. I picture it as a great place to read to a child or grandchild.
