"Long May It Wave"
Colored Pencil Over Painted with Water-Based Oils
Type Outlined with Black Ink Filled with Metallic Gold Ink
This is the Reverse Side of "Long May It Wave"
This cover started out as a "Test Cover" trying out a few new mediums and methods. During the testing the back side unintentionally received "unexpected" paint smears and smudges. I tried to paint an "Abstract" design into the smudges with a patriotic flag color theme... but wasn't happy with the outcome.
So, I decided to paste some "used" Flag Stamps in a collagedesign to "cover up" the "cover up". Made for an interesting One of a Kind Cover Front AND Back!
Here you can see the Front and Back with Flap Open... a small "smudge" of red still shows on the inside of the open flap... Kind of "Different" touch added to this Emrick Cachet...
