Stencil, Art and Snowstorms....

Hey all,
     Here is how my stencils came to be, it involves, well a bottle of wine, a snowstorm lots of heavy weight watercolor paper and well, a bottle of wine. Last Feb. (I live in New England) we had a major snowstorm....like snow for three days, roads closed, OMG why did I not buy the milk when I should have type.... of storm. My daughter was stuck at a friends house for three days and I was alone, with no school all schools (words every teacher wants to hear)...so I headed to my studio, with my bottle of wine. No milk. I started painting, like really painting, loose and free. Paint was flying, ink was flying, graphite was flying. A series came about...The Loose Woman.





 words were added...



more wine.

stencils with Stencil Girl Products

were created....which I loved, based on the paintings...





then some art created using my stencils

with mucho layering of fabrics, paints and inks...



me thinks the paintings using the stencils are some of my favorites....






so dance your dance, grab some stencils, grab a GLASS of wine, unless there is a blizzard then grab a bottle of wine.....and create some loose woman!!!
