A series of paintings center around an heirloom rocking chair given to me after my grandmother passed away. Here, I chose not to repeat the traditional caning pattern that I had so many times on the body of the chair, but instead, attached a vintage rug. I applied paint to the rug. My two year old daughter painted with me on this piece, adding her marks and lines to the bottom left corner.
