Bus Stop Chair at Slack Bottom, Heptonstall
A chair donated by the Farmer family after I upgraded their dining chairs. Now available for weary bus travellers on Smithwell Lane at Slack Bottom.
The chair has been reupholstered in a piece of a discarded painting by my excellent wife, Julie Ann Sheridan. It's acrylic on canvas, so fully waterproof - a good job because the bus stop looks far from water tight.
The painting was an unused study for a series of paintings of fungi. This one was of Marching Soldier fungus, so what better to accompany them than a plastic (Kelloggs 1970's) marching band guardsman?
Many thanks to young Annie Farmer for your help with design and reupholstery of this chair.
