I admittedly LOVE stencils. And I love that there are more and more modern options to choose from. (((a far cry from the grapes and, “country chic” motifs of years past))) Here is my current favorite, used in a painting I made for a little kiddo I know.
It’s beginning to finally look (and feel) like fall. So of course I decided it was necessary to make a plaid headboard. And make a chalkboard to hang over it. And a banner…
I had some extra fabric, so I decided to reupholster my kitchen chairs as well.
I love vintage cameras. And new cameras that look and act like old cameras.
I have a postcard that reads, “An artist is someone who finishes things.” There is an unfinished line in the middle of the card.
I find unfinished edges on canvas entirely maddening.
Vintage cameras are, as a general rule, adorably named… EXAMPLES PLEASE? okay. The Time Traveler, Brownie and Swinger… (((oh my!)))
Perhaps just perhaps this funny little painting will remind me to take more photographs… with fabulously old fashioned film.
My vintage dictionary has lovely little pictures on its pages. From these pictures I have decided to make 26 silly little alphabet paintings. To start things off we have an accordion, (egg) beater and chopstick(s).
the (egg) beater.
and z will be for zither.
