The day after 9/11, I remember feeling very compelled to paint.
(I'm sure I needed a break from the TV and
"business as usual" was out of the question.)
I took a ride to the beach.
When I turned the corner at the ocean and saw this scene,
I pulled over and painted.

The line of flags down the street at half staff took my breath away.
I was incredibly moved by being in that moment,
and will never forget it.
