I painted this 3 days after 9-11. The image that would not leave my head the absolute fear that color would never return to our lives. Thousands have been killed because of this event, no that should read hundreds of thousands have died. They were American, Iraqis, Iranians, Syrians, Germans, Italians, English, Polish, Australian, Spanish and the list goes on and on. And today all this time later we are still killing and being killed. I wonder if this madness will end in my lifetime, in my nephew’s lifetime? How many generations of people must die. If only I had a magic wand and could bring peace instead of war to the Mid-East.
