Bauhaus and Annie Sloan

I wish I could say I was always focused and on task, but the fact is sometimes I am easily distracted especially when browsing online. One thing leads to the next and I find myself somewhere I hadn't planned to go. That was the case a few days ago. I started out at MOMA in New York and the next thing I knew I was in Berlin at the Bauhaus-Archiv, Museum für Gestaltung


This tapestry by Max Peiffer Watenphul is housed there and it inspired me to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint for a similar design on the front of a small four drawer, very plain chest of drawers. The Chalk Paint colors I have on hand are a surprisingly close match, although I will be adding a little Greek Blue to the Antibes Green. As it is in process I only have my quick sketch to share but I will be posting a photo of the finished piece when complete.  Just a little midweek diversion and fun before I return to serious painting. :)
