September 12, 2001

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.
