I love finding something unique to use as a platform for my art. In preparing artwork for the upcoming Ecofest in Wichita, I thought it would be the perfect time to use this old chair back that I had found at a garage sale.
I removed some partly broken spindles, and turned the panel upside down so that the opening in the center would look like a heart. That inspired my choice for the piece…. some romantic little love birds with some sweet roses.
I cut the roses out of a wallpaper border, then painted over them, adding some more leaves cut from book pages.
The blue birds are a collage of book pages, Citra Solv paper, and paint.
What is your preference, art on a nice “normal” canvas or framed, or something created on a base of the unexpected? Can’t wait to see what else shows up at Ecofest!
