Art of the Day: Friday September 18, 2015

The Red Chair

- by Carolyn Schiffhouer

This week's theme: Pull Up A Chair

As you may have gathered from the the theme, chairs are the subject of this week's Art of the Day. It may not seem like a chair would be a popular subject for an artist to choose, but chairs seem to have personalities and each one tells it's own story.

Art: The Red Chair by Artist Carolyn Schiffhouer

This is my entry in the Ripped Off Exhibit.  I have paired with Elizabeth Fiedel.  I love her work and beautiful sense of color.  It was hard to pick just one piece for this show.  I decided on The Red Rocker because I love the use of color in it.  I found it challenging to rip this piece and also add my own special touches.  I found this photograph of an old red chair and decided it was perfect for the show.  I had to do several things to the was full of other items that just got in the way.  I cloned those out.  I then had to paint the walls, floor, moulding, window and rug colors that were reminiscent of Beth's Red Rocker colors.  I had a lot of trouble coming up with just the right green...because I felt the green was what made Beth's image so special,  I wanted to come up with just the right color.  I layered and worked on this image in Photoshop to create the final image. This has been a fun challenge!
