It's not a painting ...

I finally finished re-upholstering an antique rocking chair for my son and daughter-in-law. They are expecting a baby in Oct and this one is perfect for nursing with the low arms. It was quite a job! I removed rusty springs, straw and sisal stuffing, rotting webbing and layers of material. I have completely re-built it and re-covered it. The frame has a wonderful shaped back that is very comfortable.

It isn't a painting but lots of work and artistic in it's own way. :)
