Yesterday we went to a great celebration of foolishness! Every April Ann Arbor has a wonderful parade, and I use that term loosely, as folks just pile in the street with giant puppets marching to their own beat in their own direction. It is a lovely site!
I didn’t make it, but I did paint it. I’m quite happy with my little bowl. The Plymouth Arts and Recreation Complex (PARC) has a pottery studio with classes. It is a very groovy place to hang out, as is their art studio (with pet-able bunnies!)
The Northville Art House will hold an auction on Thursday, September 18th. They are auctioning off chairs painted by artists to benefit the Art House, and this is the second chair I painted. I call it rebirth.
The chair was another foundling, picked up by the side of the road. I felt it needed some Egyptian designs.
It is a pretty chair to start with, and I wanted it to feel just a little throne-like.
I had a lot of fun playing with the colors and shapes.
I called it rebirth because the lotus flower represented rebirth in ancient Egypt.
The Northville Art House is having a fundraising auction called The Painted Chair. I’m proud to say I will have two chairs in the auction. This is the first, I call it My Hoppy Chair.
I am a big fan of beer, and that has left me with a plethora of bottle caps. I decided to use them to cover an old chair.
I painted hop vines on the back and around the bottle caps.
The goats hanging from the back of the chair are from Celebrator Doppelbock, each bottle comes with a little plastic goat tied around the neck.
