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!

  1. Its always wonderful to see art in unexpected platforms. The variety of unexpected bases where art can be made adds to the magic of the whole piece.
