Red Chair

An insight into my method, or how this page came to be:

Opening the book to a new page, I began searching the text for anything that might jump out at me as inspiration. Immediately 'red' and 'chair' caught my eye, because just a few days ago I had clipped a nifty red chair. (I heart chairs) Continuing on down the page, I collected a few more words to tell a story. Next I painted the page, working around the text I wanted to save, then added some background texture. I knew I wanted to use the transfer of the woman propped on her books. The other elements gave me fits until I finally found the right combination and configuration. Some flourishes and a little pen and pencil work finished it up.

What story does this page tell to you?

Because everything goes back to words for me, in this piece I see a woman that is a writer. She sits in her chair to read and compose. She awaits a letter telling her that her dream of being a published author has been realized. The way the words are circled look like pools of thought to me. This is what I see in this piece.

I see me! I'm a huge book fanatic and my favorite color is red. Is that a real stamp from 1912? I love stamps!

I see a beautiful woman. She sits in her red chair and reads the letters from her dearly beloved overseas. Waiting, reading, and writing until the day he comes home.
