Unconventional Art in The Garden

2 Hours

It was a gorgeous summer day and I was suppose to be doing laundry, however I decided It could wait...Being creative was way more important! I found this chair sitting among the flowers and vines when we bought this house, I could not understand why anyone would place this chair in such an odd spot and not to mention it wasn't very appealing. We started using it as a place to sit on our back patio since we were low on chairs but last weekend we bought a beautiful patio set and this chair was no longer needed. I decided I would give it a makeover and place it back into our yard but I wanted it to be a unique piece of art that was pretty to look at. To see more you can check out my blog.
Before and After...
A closer look..."The Earth Laughs In Flowers" E.E. Cummings...I figure you can never go wrong with art and beautiful words.
I love abstract art and all of the beautiful vibrant colors. Impressionism is one of my favorite art movements.
I've always loved painting flowers and birds. I can remember my first art award in 5th grade was of a peacock and from there I had many birds, flowers, butterflies and gardens in school art shows. I love the colors and textures that they bring, it's quite amazing.

    First off you are a very talented artist! Love your chair! I'd like to ask what the seat and seat back are made of. It looks like either canvas or a canvas looking type of plastic? Did you paint your pretty florals in oil based artist paints? Wish I had half your talent, a chair like this that I could place in among a pretty flower bed with a small concrete or paver stone patio under it. Very creative and pretty! So happy your chair got a new life and your yard a pretty focal point.

      @Ardale, I think you have the paint figured out. I went to the blog, but I didn't find this project in detail. This is the most impressive of all the pretty painted chairs I've seen. She is a true artist and this chair will last longer than the laundry she would have done that day. Best wishes 😇
