Mary, this one has a sad quality about it. I like the deepening background color. Favorite #3.

Thanks, Tracy - I'm glad you liked it. And I agree, it does have a moody feel about it with the back lighting.

I've been painting ahead - today, 14th is almost done - so I wasn't really thinking about 9/11 when I painted this one. It's sadness does seem to fit for today though.

I'm glad this day is becoming not only one of remembrance but also of service. I just spent some time on MyGoodDeed.org - a step in the right direction.
