Precious Vase - 3rd painting of Laughter

I like to put the movement of life and mirth in these vase paintings. Maybe they will become a children's book or table top art book. below are my cut-outs that are both my inspiration and also a pattern for a plastic bag stencil. Using the stencil I get some nice sharp edges when I smear the paint on with a rag without a brush. The shape of laughter is a found cut-out negative space between two cut outs illustrating growth. Laughter happens when we are caught unaware and we drop our with strained guard.
