This past week I was finally able to finish some things which had been sitting on my table waiting for the finishing touches. Amongst them was a chair frame I had used as an example during one of my classes. I had painted it a nice wood colour, but just didn't know what to upholster it with.
Maybe it was the snow which gave me inspiration, because all of a sudden I knew I wanted to upholster it with white linen. I rubbed the frame with some white paint so it looked as if it had white wax on it. Although it looks rather heavy and clumsy in the photo's, in real life it is much more subtle and combines rather nicely with the white linen.
As I was taking the photo's (above) I saw some movement from the corner of my eye. As I looked over my shoulder out of my studio window, I saw a couple of Great Tits (the bird variety) on the bare branches of my grape vine, busily hopping from one branch to the other.
All I had to do was turn my camera around and snap a couple of pictures of them. They didn't even notice me, even though I was only a couple of feet away from them.
