Script Images

When I made the screen for these images suggestive of ancient scripts my husband tried to read it. I think he came up with some sort of Dick and Jane type story but the main characters were called The Man and The Woman and were involved in the pursuit of everyday tasks - maybe preparing food? cleaning up the house? laundry? Do you think he was using my art to suggest the need for a bit of domesticity over here? Ha, ha, ha....

Painted and screen printed cotton cloth with overlaid hand dyed organza and hand stitching. Finished off with a bit of sparkling pigments.

Similar stories have been told around here!
I just read back through the comments on small "doodles" as some art is perceived.All in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?
