As I was working on a painting I began to envision a group of swallows but didn't want to paint each one separately even though I have done so in the past. So, I looked through my stash of art supplies, was drawn to the blank stencils and since I was creating one, I thought, why not create two?
So, I have added a few swallows, those teeny tiny happy birds that constantly flit about chattering in my garden. I've decided to keep the cut-out or 'positive' shapes as well as I think they may show up in other work in the (near?) future.
And the bison stencil was a natural next step after seeing them in so many pictographs throughout the years (and incorporating them into paintings). Can't wait to add these guys to another piece.
