Really wonderful.

You should commission someone to actually make it into a real, textile flag.

I love it.

From the bits of blue, I thought it had a much different message than you intended.

It seemed to me in the picture that the Maple Leaf was drowning in the American flag. Which, to be honest, I think is somewhat accurate...we mirror them very deeply in quite a few ways.

But it's a great painting.

I really like that you did your own take on the flag, seems like such a simple idea but you executed it so well.

So nice.

Thank you; I love my country very much, but I hate to see it overly simplified through the cliches we tell ourselves.

Your Canada is more gangsta than mine, apparently. Love the 'melting/dripping' effect, 'specially at the top of the white, where you can see the places where the drips apparently failed to cover the canvas.

Great concept--I like this image a lot, we ought to change our flag to match it! :) I'd like to know more regarding your feelings behind this work- (if any.)

ozpopo Featured By Owner Mar 20, 2005
Thank you very much. This is more or less just a statement against the perfect symetry of our official flag. It's clean lines and symetrical balance do not speak to me of Canada. This is an utterly diverse country with depth and character... and it's not always perfect. I tried to capture that in this piece. I'm glad you like it.
