|Close-up of 9/11 Artifact #2|
As we take time out of our busy lives to pause, remember and honor those killed and injured ten years ago today, I thought I would take a break from the painting that I am currently working on and share with you photos of the second 9/11 artifact that I had the honor and privilege to be involved with. My challenge, once again, was to paint the surface as it looked when it was pulled from the rubble at the World Trade Center. This steel plate will be displayed on the campus of UCCS here in Colorado Springs. This smaller piece will be pointing toward NORAD where the other artifact I painted will be displayed.
Let us never forget.
