What I have been working on




Z-day

"V-J Day in Times Square is a photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt that portrays an American sailor kissing a young woman in a white dress on V-J Day in Times Square on August 14, 1945...Because Eisenstaedt was photographing rapidly changing events during the celebrations he didn't have an opportunity to get the names and details. The photograph does not clearly show the faces of either person involved in this embrace and several people have claimed to be the subjects."

This piece was inspired by such a spontaneous display of the human spirit; in a time of much needed morale. Conveniently, I finished this piece around the time of Remembrance day. Up for voting at threads click the link below to vote and stuff.
