Yesterday was Veterans
Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans
(Usually observed on November 11. )
"We shall never forget..."
On the 4th of July I gave this small collage painting to my neighbor, who is a retired navy officer.
What I like of this small collage is that it's hard to see what's glued and what's painted.
In this collage painting I only used
the national colors.
The American flag is covering the whole collage.
On the right hand side there's the word:
A watch is taken apart.
It jumps up high, with the glass as a magnifier showing the word: "America".
The clock represents TIME: the soldier from birth to old age.
The clock represents also 'time moving forward and marching onward'
The silver and gold in this collage sparkle like
solar system with milllions of tiny
points of bright light, stretching out
It represents time as duration: a beginning and an end.
