Art: Lichen Bench by Artist Pamela Bevelhymer

The picture of the bench with the metal frame in the background, was taken on 6th street in Traverse City, Michigan. The owner of the house lets anyone go in her back yard anytime she has a sign up that says “The Garden is Open”. She has a beautiful garden.

I wanted to make a colorful picture using the Lichen. I wanted it to be peaceful and not dark and depressing. That’s why I decided to put the lichen on something full of color.

The lichen was taken in my back yard I was surprised to find it. I didn’t even notice it before this show. It is growing all over our trees.

The first thing I did after finding the Lichen in our backyard was to lasso the lichen out of the picture and added it to the bench picture. I copied and resized the lichen until I saw what I liked and then recopied to the different areas on the bench. I blurred the image and merged the lichen to the bench. I also weathered the picture to give it a more worn appearance.
