"We Are Alive" is my latest cardboard cut that will be hanging in the Artists of Yardley 8th Annual Members Show. The size is 14" x 24".
I developed this piece after hearing the haunting lyrics from the song of the same name "We Are Alive" by Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. The following lyrics that kept coming back to me...
"And though our bodies lie alone here in the dark
Our spirits rise to carry the fire and light the spark
To stand shoulder to shoulder and heart to heart"
Bruce Springsteen's lyrics have always been great stories, and as a fan have connected to a lot of his songs, especially for this one. Everyone has lost someone they care about, and ponder life afterwards, well this song spoke volumes to me.
