Curtain Over the Casbah

This is remnants of black ink lifted off the gelli plate. I immediately saw a Middle Eastern-looking cityscape. (click image to enlarge)

  1. Great colors! I love the way that the brighter colors come forward. The eye, the night sky the village. Everything works. Just lovely.


  2. This is quite wonderful! Mainly what I’m taken with is how the tiny little middle eastern cityscape at the bottom gives a huge perspective to the rest of the piece. The fabric pieces become like vast cosmic curtains that could flutter in the desert breeze—or hang very still in the heat. Also the scimitar-looking item takes on major significance–a warning? a promise? a message of some kind.

    Do you think there might be more images from this chapter? I’d love to see them. Like the stories from Sheherazad? (guessing madly at the spelling here)
