Blind Drawing, Drawing

Telephone Drawings take 2

Painting on chairs

An idea for painting chairs came after seeing some of Hernan Paganini‘s work. He uses a lot of natural materials and this installation: ‘Anthill’ gave me lovely ideas of re-painting old wooden chairs, a bit of restoration so they don’t squeak and groan, then delicately painting rings around the legs, and strips of color across the seat and backs. There will be lots of white, just tiny accents of selective colours. I can’t wait to get to it! These chairs are going to be found from the reclaimers and used for my Light Box workshops. We need about 30 of them, eek! Time to hunt for volunteers!
