    On His Own Terms

    (I have missed my Flickr friends - it seems I have been away for so long... This March, my beloved grandfather passed away, and since then no time has felt right for me to return to Flickr.

    And then, yesterday, I read that it was Keith Haring's birthday - he would have been 54 had he not died of AIDS at age 31 in 1990. I knew that, to commemorate his birthday, it was the right time for me to begin posting a new series of mosaics I call, "Artists On Their Own Terms".)

    Happy Birthday, Keith Haring...

      Well done! I was living in NYC when he was creating images in the subway stations. A true talent and he is missed.

      I'm sorry for your loss. You must have had a special relationship with your grandfather.
      This Keith Haring piece is beautifully done, in that the colors are subtle, and not harsh, and the whole image is made up of his signature style of lines and shapes. Very nice!
