I did this piece yesterday, the drawn birds pop out from the background. As I was looking for something to collage in the background, I abandoned the pretty paper I had lined up. I couldn’t resist the urge to use an article from a 2006 issue of Harper’s Magazine entitled, “American Gulag”. It’s about Guantanamo. Suddenly my quaint bird picture gained a little more substance, even if only to me or to those who read the fine print off the flowers.
