Thread Painting

I had fun at Kilshaw's auction house last night.
I was interested in one lot - 2 thread paintings.

I came home very pleased to have won the lot for $17.50.

They are signed by Anne-Marie Matte-Desrosiers (born 1905) from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec who won awards for her work and exhibited in expositions in New York and Montreal.

And hung for many years in the "Snug" at the Oak Bay Beach Hotel, Victoria.
They are very skillfully worked and fine examples of the technique.
