I placed each grey circle individually on a black background. Several days of work (Making, detail and other portraits below). I'm now working on my next portrait: Marilyn Monroe.

 

Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara) was a British musician, best known as the lead vocalist and a songwriter of the rock band Queen. As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octave range. As a songwriter, Mercury composed many hits for Queen, including "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Killer Queen", "Somebody to Love", "Don't Stop Me Now", "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" and "We Are the Champions". In addition to his work with Queen, he led a solo career, penning hits such as "Barcelona", "I Was Born to Love You" and "Living on My Own". Mercury also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.

All Is Here To Give

 

(In memory of Freddie Mercury)

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

The day is never the same

Thru each morning and going

Love today in its new flame

Inside your heart and flowing

 

Let this day flow

Thru its moment’s go

All is here to give

Be and thru time live

Moments lost in space

In their many ways

Some may return again

Others gone with the rain

 

Our life is like the flowers

In their way and the sun

Few moments in day’s hours

Before their times are done

 

In the secrets of love’s go

In all its tomorrow’s come

Some we never do know

Where its passion is from
