For Crusade No. 33 - Back to School - Michelle Ward challenges us to take this time to learn something new. She says, "When you make the time to feed your brain, your whole self gets nourished. Even if what you are learning isn't art related."
I think that Michelle has mystical powers because she always seems to "know" the jump-start that I need. I'm a member of the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group - and I love everything to do with the fashions and furnishings of that era. But I've realized that I do not know enough about that time period's history. This means I have to do research and Learn Something New.
First, I began researching furniture, specifically chairs. Here are the Marie-like chairs that I found:
From that point, I created my own Marie-like chair. During the next couple of weeks, I think I'll do more research and draw a few different versions of this chair.
