Love the caption. I needed a bit of a smile.

Charles- It is a quote from, and a link to, the aforementioned song.

I know that I shall meet my fate, somewhere among the clouds above, those that I fight I do not hate , those that I guard i do not love.
My country is Kiltatan Cross, my countrymen, Kiltartan's poor no likely end could bring them loss,nor lead them happier than before. Nor love, nor duty ,bid me fight, nor public men, nor cheering crowds, a lonely impulse of delight drove to this tumult in the clouds. I balanced all , brought all to mind, the years to come seem waste of breath, a waste of breath, the years gone by, in balance with, this life, this death.

Willy Bollix Yeats. Anbd recited bt S. mAc Gowan on 'A time to be'

Great film, and I love these stitch-y ones. Something about how your mind makes them 3-D though you're looking at 2-D.

"I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, nor eer eagle flew –"
it does look like "easy grace"

Is there an Airwomen´s Song, too...? Have you seen the Amelia E. movie? I thought the last sequences rather touching, with her, sad but composed, wiping the tears sting-a-linging her eyes away...

ArtSparker said...

Ger- Oh, I haven't seen the film, I do like Hilary Swank though.

Did you ever see Myrna Loy as a barnstormer in "Wings in the Dark" also starring the young Cary Grant? Obscure and sometimes ridiculous, but also fascinating.

I like the stitched rain and caption.

This is a bold juxtaposition of form and color goin' on here! I probably couldn't pull something like this off so well.

ROMANIŢAN NICOLAE - Lucrări personale said...

oh...this is really interesting...i find it very spontaneous and suggestive...

the drawing studies from my blog are not made in a university but I was successfully granted in University of art and design Cluj Napoca...next year I'll try again to be granted to National University of art...on Monday I will start my curses in Cluj and i'm pretty eager...

...anyhow,I believe that the individual study is the most important so I draw a lot...some weeks ago I exhibited ones of them in a local exhibition....now I study a lot because I'm decided to make an international exhibition...though I'm not decided what country I want to choose I'm sure that I want this because here in Romania is very hard to advance and majority of cultural activities which you want to expand are bringing you a lot of disillusions.

Excuse me for the garrulity which I had :)) Starring at your artworks I find that you are in a perfect artmood ...artform,or ...I don't know the matching word...I'm glad to see such spontaneous and powerful works! a wish you a lot of fulfilments!
