Ancient Story


Only a month late, the May JQ for Contemporary Quilt Group

I just had to use one of my gelatine plate 
printed pieces.  It was telling me old surfaces.
The images are screened through a flour and
water paste silk screen, scraped carefully 
with wooden kebab stick.

It is a bit crazy and unpredictable, suits me.

Love this archaic look.
