Artist Dave Cole created an American flag in 2005 using 18,000 toy soldiers, painted in acrylics. This work is displayed at the 21c Museum Hotel in Durham, NC. How many distinct midnight blue soldiers can you spot?
Here’s the giant flag itself. This made me feel like I could create anything, that misguided euphoria that has led to multiple dismal efforts. And numerous homemade gifts that stagger the imagination (and recipients). I’ll tell you about that some time!
