Finger Painted Fabric

I've been working on a process for creating the look of finger painting on fabric - actually messing around with the concept for nearly two years. Off and on. I recently pulled my finger painted fabrics from the drawer and played around with them again. This "landscape" was created using a gelatin plate. I used my fingers as well as brushes to create the texture with the paint. This print has languished in a drawer, but when I pulled it out - I had a flash of inspiration - I envisioned cattle grazing on a hillside.

So, I screen printed cattle grazing all over it. I made these Thermofax screens from some photographs I took of cows on the ranch.
I call this one "Big Sky Bovines"
