Description
 
Nancy Curry designed Sojourn for her new Scenic Route Collection. The collection also includes Floral Carpet and Solitary Tree.
Nancy says: "Our travels have taken us to places on our bucket list that have astounded, but the ones that play out in my memory are the quiet, introspective moments that allow the natural world to show off its beauty, endurance, and stillness. Those interludes of absolute peace and wonder are the moments that get me through the hard days. During the latter part of the pandemic, they became the basis for my series of watercolor landscapes that I call The Floral Carpet series. Transforming my paintings into stencils in this ongoing collection is another way of unleashing my imagination to the world.
"I love stencils that can be used in different ways. Although they are seemingly complete compositions, they can be used in their entirety, or they break down into parts as shown in the samples. They can be the main event in your pieces or play an supporting role. My samples are very saturated or high contrast, but they would be beautifully serene parts done in pastel-colored acrylics to create a subtle background. I used varied mediums to create my samples, so let your imagination go wild. Watercolor, alcohol ink, acrylic and gouache all worked well on mixed media paper, cardstock, prepped metal and mylar.
"In 2021 I had knee surgery and was not allowed to walk much for 8 weeks. That meant I didn’t have chores to do so I painted everyday from a recliner on a tiny table that was only 12’ wide. One day I did a series of four watercolor in a square 4” format and Gratitude is a piece from that day. It inspired the Sojourn stencil in a slightly larger format. At 6” square this stencil is fantastic for small format pieces. I had a great time using different parts of it for an ATC series. Pro Tip: Masking tape is great to cover areas you don’t want to have as part of the composition."
