Thanks for stopping by on this Thursday.
Thursday’s blog is always blue, right?
Well, today is September 11th.
So I want to pay tribute to all those poor souls who lost their lives in New York on September 11th, 2001.
And all their families and friends,
who will be remembering,
How do you ever come to terms with that?
I spent some time making a piece of artwork for them.
So I spent the same time deep in thought.
And very sad.
My goodness. Do you remember that day?
I remember it as if it were yesterday.
It was the day the world changed for me.
For millions I'm sure, but I can only speak for myself
The goal posts moved.
The disbelief, the horror,
the slow realisation that what we were watching was reality.
Not a film.
Sometimes, words are just impotent.
Thank God for art.
Found two pieces of Gelli Artwork I had made
using the Houses stencil and Golden Acrylic Paints.
I liked what looked like a shaft of light on one.
Brayered black around the edges to tone it down.
in Black Archival.
Outlined with black.
Mounted on the other dark blue piece of artwork.
My daughter Grace lives in New York.
I shall visit her again in a couple of weeks.
I love that city. I love its resilience.
And we will walk through the Ground Zero Memorial Park
Not to gawp or take mindless selfies!
No, not at all.
Just to pay our respects and remember.
