A chair for Oma
This past weekend we went to Skaneateles Lake, a small finger lake outside of Syracuse, to celebrate the life of my mother-in-law, Kay Monterville. She died unexpectedly in February in Florida, so we decided to hold the memorial on Memorial Day weekend back in Syracuse where she lived. We rented a house on beautiful Skaneateles lake and had the whole family come from all over the country to celebrate her life. It was a wonderful service and there were lots of tears...we miss her so much.
So since it was a celebration we spent a long weekend at the lake and had lots of food and several bon fires. And I found time to paint! Since Oma loved red and always had a signature red item in her house I thought this red chair was the perfect thing to paint in her honor. I can just imagine her sitting in this chair looking out at the lake enjoying the sun and the warmth of her family around her:)
