The Material Whirl: 09.10.11 — Shanksville

10 Sep

This collage is 5-3/8″ x 3-5/8″, on recycled cake mix box cardboard.  I worked on it as I watched the Flight 93 Memorial dedication on television just before the observance of the 10th anniversary of 9/11.  I was not able to do justice to the brilliant green of the field behind the speakers at the podium, with its waving wildflowers, but I came as close as I could with the materials on hand.
