The College Chairs

Thought you’d maybe like to see what I’ve been up to with those college chairs I told you about!

Quick refresher: they’re to be presented to the Poets Laureate of Whittier College, the elite group of donors to the school. Each one features the same scene on the seat, the iconic view of Whittier’s Diehl Hall, with the 101-year old Rock in the foreground, often painted (as is the tradition) with the colors of that recipient’s society (which is like a fraternity or sorority), with the addition of Friday the Squirrel (also a piece of Whittier lore) popping up in different places.

The chair back is then devoted to more personal elements for each recipient, specific donations to the school, personal interests, awards, chocolate chip cookies…things like that.

So here’s what I’ve done so far:

A lot of purple, a lot of squirrels, a lot of fun! There are at least four more coming up after these latest two are done…plus a new footstool order…geez, I better go get to work!
