Chair #18 - Lincoln Elementary School
Painted by Linda Emlin, Local Artist
Linda Emlen was asked to volunteer to paint a chair for Lincoln school. Mom to second grader Zofia, became inspired by the “ROAR” slips given out to students caught for good behavior. The idea for whimsical school supply was born. Having never painted on furniture before proved to be challenging. After several revisions and idea changes, the final details had to be completed, a due date imminent, there would be no more metamorphosis. This chair is painted using indoor/outdoor paint of various brands and colors, also chalk paint, and paint markers, finished with slight distressing and sealed with Helmsman Indoor/outdoor spar urethane in clear gloss.
About the Artist:
I love to play with colors and textures exploring different mediums. Currently my paintings reflect ocean and space being so vast and mystifying, I am drawn to the ebb and flow of the universe. My work can be seen at the Jefferson Street Gallery.
