Mysterious beginnings. Gothic creature of the deep by Dorothy Graden

This creature appeared from the cotton rag as I was pulling it in the paper studio. The more I looked at the pressed and dried paper, the more the spirit called out to me. She is definitely inspired by the rock art I see out west, but she emits her own message and mysterious power.
