Quite a while back, on a visit to my daughter, I noticed this wonderful old chair next door...just sitting there by itself ......Picture time! I love old, vintage-y things and thought this might make a good image for a small quilt.
The peeled layers of paint were wonderful...
along with the old fashion like arms
This chair had been painted many, many times.
I also thought, what a great silk screen this would make. I liked this angle of the chair, thought it captured it the best. I pulled it up in Photoshop Elements and made it into a photocopy. There was quite a bit of "noise" surrounding the chair which I removed by cutting away from the picture and in closer to the chair, using white out. I wanted the screen to focus on the chair and not what was going on around it.
I also did some photocopies and then screens of some of the texture in the chair.
and....Have a Seat.....It's a small piece and was fun to do...used up some scraps, made some new silkscreens and worked with the deconstructive screen printed fabric which is hard to use. I am linked to Off the Wall Fridayand Whoop, Whoop Friday. Check them out.
