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.
