painting session

I spent an evening a couple weekends ago painting. I found some neat art related quotes that I wanted to try painting. I got the stencil idea from an article in an art magazine (featuring an artist who uses lots of type in his artwork). And I learned that cutting out custom stencils is painstaking and tedious. But at least you can use them more than once.

edit: The artist that got me thinking about stencils is Ward Schumaker, and he was featured on the website Illustration Friday.

Love the ink splat bird. 'Tis beautiful. That would be a cool desktop background, ahem, or print or something.
Bring on the imagination!
