In Flanders Fields

Not an original title, of course. Baby Bear sang that song in several concerts as part of a choir and it makes me cry every time. This was an attempt at collage in 2008. The background is sprayed with walnut ink and possibly Moonshadow Mist ink spray at well, and the collage material was a Target ad from a magazine. It's not great but I still quite like it. I love collage but am still not brilliant at it, though I have recently bought a couple of books to inspire and refresh my ideas as I would like to get into it again.

Choirs have that effect on me too. Who knew Target could be so arty??

I like it too. It does have the effect of poppies in the field. Sometimes collages are overdone. I'd say you stopped at the right time here.

see you there! said...

What a great collage, it would make a nice illustration for the poem.
