Painted Seat


While touring the event on Canyon Road I tried to get around to most of the artist who were out working. I missed a few but I found this old wooden chair with paint on it left vacant while the artist was on a break.

I once found two very old grass-green chairs sitting out in the street on a frosty morning. I stopped and asked the elderly woman why they were out there (since it was trash day)and she invited me inside and showed me all the furniature her father had made when he was still alive. (We are still friends to this day.)

And when I left, my hands carried two grass-green chairs, made with love by a father long ago. :)

An artist's chair, no doubt about this!

Cool!

Canyon Road is always fun, and I like your post of a piece of unusual "art" which you spied on your walk. If you haven't, you need to go to Ed Larson's Gallery and talk to him. He's an interesting man and artist. I featured him on my Santa Fe blog last March, but can't figure out how to link the post here. Eventually I'll learn how to use this Mac more efficiently!!

Everybody needs a little break! ;-)

That's the trouble with painting - it's so messy! Love the shot. It's a good reminder that the spark of creativity often gets lit by serendipity during a break!

I'm betting this is a very important piece of furniture for this aritist.

I can barely manage a stick figure, I'm envious of people who have artistic talents. I've met some really interesting people when out looking at art.

Great shot! I wonder who old that chair is.

And now of course you have us wondering about the work of art that was in progress.

I always wonder how I do to put colours everywhere around me when I'm painting ! I'm not alone !!
I love this shot Randy and I can imagine the painter !

The stories that chair could tell! Nice shot!

Oh, that's a neat picture. I could spin so many stories about that chair!

JM said...

I agree with VP and Sharon.

It's a kind of living catalogue of the artist's work

A phantom artist! :)

That reminded me of my school days!

Jack said...

That is a nice detail. Randy.

I'll bet this chair has seen some butt-slapping good times!

Tell Kate to just copy her URL right into the comment block for a link. Blogger will even underline it and colorize it for an easy link.

I can think of a few ways to turn that chair into something really visually interesting! :)

A couple of days left before the New Year. Are you ready?

Many thanks for your patience, and for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
