Beauty in all the negative spaces

Cutout sheep for the piece about fears after the lights go out at bedtime.  

Cutout sheep for the piece about fears after the lights go out at bedtime.  

Sometimes the remnants from a fear piece really strike me. The leftover paint splotches, the negative spaces in anything I cut out (like the sheep, above), the scraps of paper sitting off to the side, the pencil shavings after I use the sharpener — or maybe the stray glitter that lands in random places (that's what glitter does — travels. And speaking of glitter: I admit it's the corniest, most Martha Stewart-ish thing I use in my fear pieces. I just think of it as my artistic "bling." It's so cool, and I can't resist it sometimes ...).
