I have several of the books you mentioned, including yours. I'm still taking my baby steps in stencilling, and my books are always nearby for inspiration and encouragement. I hope those gorgeous Chinoiserie walls are still at the hotel. I can't imagine anyone painting over those. They're at the top of my list of places to visit in London too, if I ever get there!

So you are off again. At least you will be away from this awful weather. Is it November by any chance?


Brava to both of you!!!! You keep the art alive for future generations!

I received this question in an email relating to the inspirational books post.

'I want to ask you if you're familiar with another of
Lyn Le Grice's projects that I saw in an old back issue of Artistic Stenciler magazine. I'm not sure of the date, but I think it was probably late 80's, or early 90's. She collaborated with a group of fellow stencilers/students, to paint murals on the walls of the tea room at a museum somewhere in England, but I've misplaced the magazine, and I can't recall the name of the museum. I think it was located in Bath. Does that sound familiar to you? If so, do you know if their work is still there?'

Does anyone know the answer? I am sure that the museum was the American Museum in Bath but I do not know about the tea room project.

Great post Helen! I definitely see the thread between all these inspirational photos!! I remember seeing that article and will try to find time to look back over all my Artistic Stenciler magazines to find it!

Hmmm, I wonder if I should replace my first Le Gryce book now too!! My dear, departed Spotty dog had thought it would make a nice chew toy years ago, and it bears the scars!!
