This is the entry for "Fringe". K.Madison Moore's May Challenge from Daily Painters International Art Gallery.
I received this Spanish shawl or "manton" from a cousin in Spain, a few years ago, when she visited us in Miami. I think it's beautiful and because of it's fringe and the fact that I love it, I decided to paint it! Thanks Madison for your creative inspiration!
(Did you know that the Spanish shawl or Manton de Manila, as the Spanish call the shawl, originally came from the Far East, in China? Read more about it's history here in the New Embroidery Group Blog. )
