Today is a sad day, remembering 10 years ago.....my friend called me this morning during the memorial services and we talked awhile about that day. We were together, she was visiting me in California and we were enjoying some fun time in the sun - no worries, just laughs for a week. That morning, her daughter woke us up and told us to turn on the tv - well, my daughter was living just 15 blocks from the World Trade Center and I guess I had a panic attack, right there in my living room. Thank God Mary was there to calm me down and help me get through that day. My daughter was fine, in most ways, but shocked and very traumatized by all she saw. Anyway, today I wanted to paint something beautiful and natural and happy. My neighbor, Nancy, grows the most amazing flowers around her house. She gave me these two varieties of hydrangea and so I used pastel and painted this still life. I never paint still life.....but it made me happy today.
