Great Grandpa Barley!





This is a some artwork done with a stencil I cut of an old picture of my Great Grandpa Barley on my father's side. I still need to do some work on it and I need to get better at scanning these but you get the idea...

These are great! I love that you show all the different things you did with one stencil. I may just do the same with the Frida stencil I cut today. Glad to see that you are forging on with the stenciling. I just can't seem to quit! Thanks for sharing, are you going to keep putting them into the group site? I can't decide if I am or not.

Hi Yeah I think I will keep using the groups site! I love to do several sheets at once! That way I can be working on something while another dries... It is all because I am sooo impatient....

Cool series! Like that you used a family member's photo to create the stencil. So much more meaningful that way!
