Art Outdoors: Paint Fun   27 comments


As with most of my ideas/projects there is rarely an enforced timeline for completion. I started this painting project in December 2011.

Painted Wooden Fire Chair

I finished the majority of the painting this week.

 

Chainsaw Chair We use a large section from a fallen oak tree to cut the main body of the chair.

 

Fire Circle Wooden Chair The chair topper adds neat detail.

Now for some random fun paint shots.  Day 2 The Paint Falls

 

Day 2 Painted Scream on Chair    Day 2 Painted Groove with Texture

The most difficult part of this painting was keeping my hands clean as to not paint my camera during the two days of painting. I used all old paints that would have ended up in the landfill to brighten up our backyard!

 

Enjoy your day!
