The Van Gogh Chair

I’m not sure what it is about this chair, but it reminds me of a Van Gogh painting. Perhaps it’s the slight lean or corded seat or general tattiness, but it looks like something Van Gogh would put in a painting. (I can even imagine it in thick brushstrokes and vivid colors.)

Hubby and I were taking pictures of inventory for our business this morning. We purchased a great lighting set that came with 3 backdrops, including the black one in the photo. We’re really digging the set because it’s helping us to take better photos. (Although keeping the dog and cat hair off the cotton backdrop is a challenge. Lint roller to the rescue!)

I took all of these shots of the ladder-back chair, which looks artistic from every angle.
