Nancy Curry designed Solitary Tree for her new Scenic Route Collection. The collection also includes Sojourn and Floral Carpet.
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.
"This is the second of four tree-themed watercolor pieces from 2021. The original art, Solitary, was a fun exploration of scale and the modern phrase, size matters. I do love a strong focal point and have enjoyed pairing that with different background styles. Pro Tip: Experiment with different background styles that you wouldn’t normally use. My favorite was Citra Solv paper. Want to know more about that? Check out StencilGirl Studio. I have a class on there. While you’re at it, check out all the classes from all the artists. Brilliance abounds."
