Wow, that makes a stunning impression from top to bottom. I tried doing silkscreen in high school, enjoyable but a lot of work too.
My WW will be posted at The cafe in the morning.

The expression of the kid's face in this silkscreen speaks a thousand words we can't be able to express.

Not a day to be forgotten for sure. I know a woman who lived through the bombings but lost most of her family. The reality of war is so tragic!

The print is awesome and the cause it represents makes me wordless. Thanks you for sharing, Mary. You always have great things for WW.

Breathtaking in its starkness.

It's an eerie image -- as it should be, given what it is commemorating.
