Paper Stars and Stripes

Ah haaaa!! So the little paper stars have some new friends ๐Ÿ™‚ some stripes made from vintage photographs, and some stripes made from old quilts.
This new mixed media piece I’m working on was recently commissioned based on another flag I did a few years ago. Here are a few images ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is the original 4×8 foot Flag named “Democracy.”
This piece now lives happily in a lovely little bed and breakfast in an old firehouse in Harvard Square.
Happy Forth of July wishes to you!
