Night Light

  • Night Light

    911 Night Light is a post September 11 reverse glass painting done in a window sash, as it may have been viewed by a neighbor.  The price is $650

    I suppose that now, 16 years later, many of us feel the need to create our own 911 Memorial. Mine happens to be of 2001 September 11 painted on glass. These are original reverse glass paintings, done by myself.

    Now we have new words in our vocabulary, such as ground zero, September 11 crisis, and 911 has more than one meaning for us all. I guess it’s all part of life, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it.

    I was unable to even begin my first 911 painting until over a year later. I still don’t think I’m finished.

    In November of 09, my husband and I took a very spontaneous trip to N.Y.C. We went down on a bus with his son and his son’s girlfriend. We only had 1 day to spend there, and it was for the holiday; none of us had said anything about Ground Zero until halfway through the day. Most of our day was spent at the Metropolitan Museum of Fine Art. At the time, Vermeer’s “Milkmaid” was on display.

    I was quite shocked at what appeared to be a lack of security, and sure that people had forgotten 911.

    But only a few days later, I saw a woman painting beautiful pictures of the biggest atrocity mankind has yet to know. WWII.

    A crowd of thousands watched while she painted in sand, creating pictures that brought the audience to tears. I am now continuing my 911 memorial.
