I wanted to acknowledge today's 7th anniversary by posting this painting I did in February, 2002. It's a large painting with two important details you may not see well. First, there is a smudge of smoke on the horizon representing the World Trade Center. Second, the figure in the foreground is a U.S. soldier in deep shadow and you may not make out the equipment on his back. I chose the Oklahoma prairie as the setting.
I sold this painting to architect Fred Hackl and it was the beginning of many commissions he had me paint for his house in Michigan.
I was devastated by the attack and it took me awhile to attempt a painting that captured the sadness and pride I felt that lonely day in September, 2001.
