Furniture with soul

I am addicted to restoring old pieces of furniture that I find. Each piece of furniture that I refurbish has a story to tell. This chair was full of horse hair and springs, dating back to somewhere around the 1930’s.

I found this beat up rocking chair sitting in the street, for free. For less than $40.00, I gave this old girl a lift, a tuck and a snip! I chose not to fix every nook and cranny because I want some of the wear and tear to show, some of it’s history. I had some left over fabric, so I made a quick pillow.

Original Art-By Audrey Briggs

I painted this “Dementor” on 9.5″x7.75″ piece of birch wood. Inspired by the Harry Potter book, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Using acrylic paint, once dry the piece was covered in gloss, for a glass look (difficult to see in the photo). The Dementor is set in front of the full moon, just after Prof. Lupin transforms into a werewolf.

I am donating 2 pieces for the Rochester Contemporary Art Center’s Annual 6×6 Exhibit. This one, simply named “Pinwheel”, will be available for purchase in New York or on-line for $20 bucks. This is press-board, 6″x6″, acrylic, with a high gloss finish. This has a black background with several soft colors making the pinwheel design. Inspired by a Pinwheel Nebula. I love outer-space and science. The backside is affixed with a saw tooth hanger for easy hanging.

Most of my acrylic painting designs are based on how I’m feeling that day, simple as that 🙂
