Take a Word: Manuscripts

The Take a Word challenge theme this week is "manuscripts," inspired by the concept of palimpsests, which are writing materials (such as a parchment or tablet) used one or more times after earlier writing has been erased.

Simply beautiful, Sherry. I am so impressed with the shadowing of the hand which makes it look almost three dimensional - and I love the grungy finish. Fabulous.

A lovely interpretation on the theme, Sherry, I especially love the hand which appears to be popping right out of the piece. Love it.
