I have not posted anything in several months. I have lots to share, but I just don't understand my blog well enough, I guess. My son has been here on a visit and he has helped me a great deal in understanding this blog. Hopefully, I will be better at how I post. This post is about some chairs I painted back in May. They were blond wood. I first painted a coat of primer. Then I painted the chairs and sealed them with a sealer.
The chair seats I enjoyed doing very much. I primed the canvas with gesso and then free hand drew the faces on the canvas. These faces were so much fun. I have been interested in faces for several years, and feel like they are evolving so much. These faces are funkier than the ones I have drawn and painted before and I feel so much more confident with them. Elineor Piece Bailey once told me to PRACTICE, PRACTICE and PRACTICE to develope the skill and that has definitely helped me. I have come a long way with drawing faces in two years considering at that time I couldn't draw them at all. I finished the canvas seat covers with a couple coats of scotchguard and so far so good.
These are the finished chairs. The chairs themselves were alot of work. The faces not. I have enjoyed having them at my kitchen counter and have received many compliments on them. I feel they are add to the funkieness of my home decor.
