The first painting I will write about is "Stirrings." I was teaching at a school that was on a country road at the time. Across the street was a farmhouse. The morning after 9/11 the homeowners had hung a large American flag from a large tree in the yard. It was such a moving sight. The sun was in the background and the tree was a large, silhouette, with little color, except from the flag. Because that was such an emotional time, I didn't actually paint the scene until a few years later.
