Being from the beautiful state of Kentucky makes me feel like the luckiest girl this side of the Mason Dixon...especially when the first weekend of May rolls around. Can't wait to celebrating the 137th running of Kentucky Derby tomorrow! This historic, festive day served as inspiration for the Sprout Studio project this week, along with an amazing artist. In 2006, Ann Wood started making cardboard horses as a self imposed assignment, a daily creative task intended to motivate and loosen her up..."little experiments, paralysis prevention." Her plan was to make a cardboard horse everyday, Monday through Friday, until she had 100. Love this idea. The photo above was taken of Ann's cardboard stampede exhibit at Tinlark in Los Angeles in 2007. Horses, horses, and more horses! Happy weekend...and Happy Derby!
