Something Closer to the RIght Side....

Even though the precision with which I make my cut-paper sculpts can readily lure me into Left Brain Land, I think I avoided that trap with this piece. It was originally done about ten years ago (close after the “long/skinny” I just posted) but I revised it this last year before giving it to my friend Hank Taylor upon his promotion to colonel.

The bright colors and near-whimsical rendering style are not an exact fit for the intensity and tone of the Normandy invasion but there is still a sense of strong emotion, that butterfly-on-steroids feeling you get in your stomach before making a night equipment jump.
