CHAIR THE STAR [stars]


chair,Chair! CHAIR?, whenever i've put a chair in a illustration or painting - it,they, have played a very minor role-and never a well developed one. So I decided to make the CHAIR the STAR - Today [besides it is the topic for the week] I hope they don't get any BIG ideas-depends on the reviews I suppose.
anyway, this is of course a digital, original-based on our dining area-although I played fast and loose with the snow-we have the white stuff, but it doesn't look like this.

Yes, they are stars in their own right here. Great composition... the one tilted in to the table... and the great colors on the high chair. Really clean, reflective floor, too! Nice.

I like it - very dramatic, great reflections and touch of dog presence as well as human members!

Liberty said...

Hey, this is great, a chair family with a baby and all. Well done and fine colours.

Kiri said...

...Kat said...

wonderful
and especially including the high chair...
I am imagining these chairs are reflecting on their earlier evening and the good time that was had at the table

It could be that 'tony' does come by time to time,to check out my chairs, maybe I let him sit in them, and maybe I don't. I'm afraid miss pretty, there's a vicious rumor going around-that pink is not perhaps his favorit color afterall

LudaChristian said...

great work... love the reflection on the floor. nice job!

Jeff said...

A very peaceful scene, this...the snow adds a lot (it's really exotic for me, since we don't get it in this part of the world). I'd hang out in this room!

ValGalArt said...

Miri, this is so wonderful! I love that you featured your chairs! Love the colours and love the leash draped across the chair! really beautiful!!!

i like the colors and the effects that enhanced the picture a lot more.

Sally said...

It glimmers and looks so shiny and clean. My dining room doesn't look that shimmery and gleaming.

Nice!

Absolutely wonderful; this would be a great image to hang in a dining room or restaurant!

Great Ill. girl love the shading in this. The high chair is the star! Have a good week!

The Unknown said...

Cool. The one chair must have had a little something in it's drink. The chair looks passed out.

catraven said...

True stars, one and all. I love the snow! I like your image!

Ian T. said...

A family of chairs! This is a strong composition featuring lovely colours, with skilled contrasts of tonal areas (light and dark). The chairs all have individual character, but none moreso than the tilted one.

fortwertz said...

This reminds me of such nostalgia. Well done!

clouds said...

I like the colors and the reflections.

And I am glad there is a beyond in the picture.

I wonder how you do the reflecitons.

The tone is excellent.
If you want to know the truth. . I just don't care for the line of the snow. . . it looks artificial to me.

the picture is splended though. The light is excellent.

I am puzzled by the line going through the moon. I wonder what it is. At first I thought it was a line of a building in the distance. .

but why would it intesect the moon?

but maybe it is a cloud (?)

I wonder what is in the middle of the table. .
won't you tell?

HARDWAX said...

Thanks for your comments Cloud. Yes, I played with the snow to present the chairs better-all objects and tones and textures, are there for one reason-to spotlight the chairs,secondary objects,such as the moon, tabletop objects, etc.,the presentation is minimal-almost not there in the case of the houses seen thru sliding doors

a tree limb in the glow of the moon.
a fruit bowl in the middle of the table
