Window With Tattered Curtains
This window with tattered curtains was inspired by photos of an abandoned cracker house I took a few weeks ago. Behind the window I've added a white piece of paper colored in with marker, pencil, and a wash of blue slip to see what an addition of wavy glass and tattered curtains might look like after I fire the piece.
Looking at the black portions, the recesses in the room, a ghostly apparition or semi hidden figure calls out to me, begging to show themselves, just a little. Perhaps a small girl or an old woman looking out from behind the tattered curtains. Maybe just a hand pulling the curtains back every so slightly. I'll make a few more of these so I can embellish them in various ways after I fire them. I'm going to have a lot of fun with these. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
