mono prints with hand stitching

 
This series is 6 pieces in total. I began with a prompt... a cutout ladder. I had completed another series with multiple stencils and now I was investigating how I could use just one cut out without other images. The color is paynes gray which is one of my favorites... it's a moody and inquisitive color, is it dawn or dusk, am I climbing up or down? Once the pieces had dried I made the decision to add other elements with hand stitching.
