And in the Sky a Lark

And in the Sky a Lark

 

The inspiration for this impression of a World War I battle field was John McCrae’s renowned poem, "In Flanders’ Fields". I tried to imagine the battle as seen from an observation post on a bright, sunny spring day, where the chaos of the battlefield contrasts sharply with the simplicity of the bird’s flight.
