I'm a Firefighter and have painted firefighters in action for close to 20 years. When I saw the World Trade Center on 9/11 I knew there were going to be a high number of fatalities, including firefighters. At the end of that horrible Tuesday, there were countless lives that would change forever. I know many New York firefighters, including my brother, that lost friends and co-workers that day. I attended the funerals of the firefighters I did know and many more I didn't. I had to paint something. I wanted it to be simple but powerful enough to make a lasting impression. Like the impression left by the firefighters climbing the WTC to make complete the largest rescues in US history. That is why I painted A New York City firefighters helmet place on an American Flag. I don't think I need to say anymore except, NEVER FORGET!
