Life in Pieces



L I F E    I N    P I E C E S

"When art imitates life. I am really happy to be back on the StencilGirl blog with projects that are out of my wheelhouse and even happier that I was able to get the projects finished well before my StencilGirl team deadline and my surgery date.  These larger sheets don't lose their interest when sized down and put together for a series of wall art pieces. Even though I'm known for smaller format work, it was exhilarating working with so much real estate.  Head over there to see the process and definitely watch the slideshow.

I'm a week out of meniscus root tear repair and so far it's been a humbling experience.  I am largely sedentary for the next six to eight weeks.  No one is sure how or why this occurred but I had mentally named this project before that moment in late June.  I had some teaching responsibilities that I wanted to attend so I spent July working ahead and prepping for Cincinnati.  The day before the surgery I packed a tote with substrates, watercolor and alcohol inks that I hope to pop open in the coming days.  So far I've only managed some Procreate art made out of my paintings and sketches.  Stay tuned.  In the meantime, you'll be treated to some work I completed in July/early August including the new crop of ornaments.
