Here's The Poop

The Navy chair:

This chair never goes out of style, according to the manufacturer, and they've been making them since the 1940's. They were designed for use on submarines and aircraft carriers, which is why they are compact, light weight (aluminum) and very strong. The material they are made of is three times stronger than steel, corrosion-resistant, and said to have a life expectancy of at least 150 years.

Good enough for me.

Mostly, I just like the nice clean lines.

Just plain aluminum would go nicely in our kitchen, but these days they do come in colors. And, of course there are variations from the original in other materials, such as plastic.

My computer wasn't working right all day, so while I was doing various scans and things I drew this picture of a lady in her favorite dress.

Upside down she's a flower:

Now that's what I call multipurpose art.

Hope you're having a wonderful day!

I agree. The lines of the chair are timeless. Are you going to order in a color or colors? Yeah, I would have one of each color (grin).
More importantly, your artwork! I want to know, did you create the lady and then see the flower, or did you create the flower and then see the lady? It is just wonderful!

I'm usually about 80% through with a drawing before I know what it is. This time I did see the lady first. Re the chairs and table: To Kathy - love your ideas, but that would be YOUR table. To Jude - they're all gorgeous so we'll probably buy the color that's on sale. Almost anything would go in our mostly white kitchen! Love getting your comments!
