And on this Tuesday, I wanna share with y'all one of my favorite things. . . spray paint!!! I am facinated with this medium. So many ways to use it! Below are some images- a few I took myself, and some i lifted from other folks web pages or blogs. . . and if you happen to see your work and i haven't credited you, I am truly sorry- I didn't take very good notes- I will get better at this i promise!
This is a place in Queens, NY called "5 points". Here on this city block graffiti art is legal. "5 Points" is a 15min train ride from Times Square so if you are ever in the city, let me know and i will give you directions- you must see this! Here are more pics. . .
Look at that face!! Can you believe that was done with spray paint?
Now if you aren't so much into painting large murals with your spray cans- i hear your little finger gets pretty tired of pushing down on the nozzle- then here are some smaller projects to inspire you. . .
Or a spray painted wall sconce! I believe this was a sconce bought from Home Depot or Lowes and the designer used Krylon high gloss paint to create this masterpiece! It looks like enamel!! So Fabulous! ( and i can't remember where i pulled this pic from- but I'm thinking it might be from a designer featured on Design Sponge, one of my favorite crafty blogs!! )
And would you please look at this FAbulous spraypainted headboard I found on apartmentthearpy.com. . . aMAHzing!
So- theres your inspiration for today. Go buy a can of spray paint and tag something (legally please.) Have a great day everyone----See ya tomorrow!

Today we celebrate an artist I discovered at Birmingham's ArtWalk. In a word, FABULOUS. I am saving my money now in order to buy one of his original works. "But, Aunt Fabulous, what is this dude's name?" ok ok ok (drum roll please) JOHN LYTLE WILSON!!!! I dont think I can begin to describe this guys work- you're just gonna have to see for yourself. Below is a snap shot i took with my phone of an actual painting from his "Corrected Paintings" series ( I doubt that was a very couth thing for me to do, taking a picture of an artists painting right in front of the artist, but i just couldn't help it- these paintings are so damn awesome!).
See what i mean? Fabulous. I think this one is my favorite. Its as if Robots invaded a Bob Ross painting! (by the by, Bob Ross is my favorite artist of all times and i am forever on the lookout for a Ross Original- if anyone has one they would like to get rid of, lemme know!) Please visit Mr. Wilson's site and wander through his many fabulous works. I love his use of color- so bright, so bold- and his subject matter. . . does it get any better than monkeys, unicorns, and robots? (just to mention a few!) Its poppy, its iconic, and it makes me smile real big! SO- Hooray for John Lytle Wilson! Hooray for Friday! Hooray for Fabulous!!

So- It was a pig themed party. . . we didn't buy anything in the way of decorations, just ran around mama's house grabbing anything pink or pig-like. . .

5. can i sustain the degree of fabulous-ness required to maintain a blog entitled "A.Fabulous Design"?
And maybe tomorrow I will tell you why I am called Aunt Fabulous. . . maybe.
