a work in progress...

For some reason known only to the art gods...I have to create this piece of art incorporating the Union Jack. Perhaps it is the upcoming Olympics being held in London, starting July 27th... 125 days to go...and counting. Perhaps I am being asked to explore my roots through these vintage photographs of my relatives... Perhaps it's just time I work large... 28 x 14... I don't know where this is going... or where it will end up... I have more sense than to ask... but when it is done, I will post it if you like... though it may be awhile... I have been brooding over this piece for awhile now... I think I'm posting it so I get going on it... I work best under pressure.

This is going to be special, Angela. It was obviously an inspiration that needed to be expressed! I'm anxious to see the final, beautiful result! (Do you dream about your work as it progesses? I do...)

A great project ! I love it. I have just made a large 24 x 36 collage and had it framed on my wall,of my Grandmothers old greetings cards. So beautiful, padded cards, bluebirds, pop out flowers. My Grandmother was born in the East end of London in 1897. She had 9 Children, my Mother was the youngest, and was born when my Grandmother was 44 ! So, some of her cards are from the early 1920's with George V stamps on. I'm thrilled with my collage, as I'm sure you will be with your Union jsck box !

Sorry to be off topic,but can you answer a fan question about TSOM?Did Nicky had a crush on Julie?I was noticing some moments while rewatching the movie,he is leaning to her when Maria first meet the children,he is always close to her in the Do Re Mi songs and he can't stop looking at her in the Lonely Goather,one time specially he look at her with a serious face.I was reading comments at IMDB and YouTube and a lot of people realised that too,so I just want to know if he really had a crush on her,can you answer me please?Love TSOM and love your blog

I love what you've done with your Union Jack piece so far, Angela. Maybe it has to do with the Queen's 60th Anniversary and your English roots? Looking forward to seeing it when it's completed. A few months ago, I was also hit with a wave of nostalgia and I decided to use the old flag of Canada as my profile pic on Etsy, which highlighted Canada's ties with Great Britain.
