Here is my 12 x 12 "chair" piece. The story about these little childrens' chairs is posted with my piece on the 12 x 12 blog. What I was most interested in with this piece was trying out my idea of using a very limited pallette and using mostly neutrals. Some of the viewers commented on the 12 x 12 blog that it seemed "melancholy" or expressed "loss". That was not my intention, but I was going for a somewhat nostalgic look, sort of like old photos or engravings. I wonder if the subject matter seems to call for a more cheery color scheme, or if the story I wrote about the chairs led to the melancholy conclusion. It is endlessly fascinating to read/hear what impressions people get from one's artwork.
I hope you've checked out the chair pieces on the 12 x 12 blog. As always, they are wonderful. I feel so fortunate to be part of this group.
