Pushing IT!

As in I am having fun seeing how far I can take one simple stencil of a spuggy and expanding on it. The eye is not a stencil but a collage taken from a fashion mag.  
I wasn't liking the paint on the old cd, how it cracked and was messy, but somehow it really worked after I stenciled it. 

14 Tips to Stretch Yourself Creatively
To Stay Creative, Let "Preciousness" Go

I sure wish I could stretch in a studio like Alexander Calder's though, can't swing a cat in my tiny space.

Gosh, I feel like Rip Van Winkle!
(Have I really been away from your blog THAT LONG???)

Anyway, lots of cool stuff going on, huh?

LOVE Calder's studio (drool) (I'd move in in a sec!) and your latest FAFs n stensil works. Too much fun.

So, so sad about Rufus. Hard to lose a 'best little buddy' anyway, but he was just SO adorable. And they're not 'just animals;' they're little friends that just happen to not be human. We grieve for you.

Thanks for all the fun posts n pics, and the nudge to 'stretch.' I read the list and (I have to admit) they all felt a little scary.

Thanks for dropping by T,so nice to see you, although I understand. Life get's busy. I agree about the list. I love the idea of doing an abstract a day for a week and reflecting your changing mood.
