Delphinium Chair with Hand Caned Seat

Larger than life lavender Delphiniums grace the backrest of this vintage chair. The flowers are hand painted in acrylic paint in a hyper-realistic style with a touch of   soft focus.  I really like the effect and I hope you do too.   The chair itself is done in soothing blues, purples and greens.  The darkest color is very deep purple.  On the back side I painted a Silver Studded Blue butterfly.   I also hand caned the seat.  It turns out this sturdy chair might be pretty old as I found that the caning holes were clearly hand drilled. They were irregular in size, placement, and spacing, making this quite a challenge for a first time caner! I have included an image of the rescue chair as it first came to me! Look what a little paint and love did to it!    If you are interested in possibly purchasing something similar to this piece please Send me an email or leave a comment.
