Painting - Watercolor
On September 11, 2001, St. Paul's Chapel stood only yards from the falling World Trade Center buildings, yet suffered no damage; only dust and ashes, inside and out.
Saint Paul's Chapel provided a respite from the storm for eight months. The love that was within her walls was matched by the love that surrounded her...hanging on the fence that surrounds the church grounds.
Within the chapel walls, the rescue workers were provided a place to be replenished, physically and spiritually.
Outside, her fence provided a place to hang our hearts. We said our good-byes, searched for loved ones and expressed our love for those who died that day and our love for those who labored tirelessly in the days after we were attacked.
The world grieved with us and sent messages and expressions of love.
This piece was painted from five photos that I took in March 2002. Computer research filled in the balance of the space. A magnifying glass was used about as often as paint brushes.
We as a nation began to heal on the fence that surrounds St. Paul's Chapel.
"The time for mourning may pass, but the time for remembering never does".

May God bless America!
