I made this painting on the 4th day, in my farewell to those brave men and women who rushed to, and into, the burning towers. They saved many and many of them perished. Painting can be healing for me. I believe the way through pain is to put on your shoes–or pick up your brush–and slog on through it. In the week of 9/11 painting helped; it kept me grounded. Art can heal if we let it.
