Here is my fuzzy friend again, complete this time.
It a bit unnerving studying insects very closely, but fascinating at the same time. The construction of insects, like humans, is quite remarkable and never truly appreciated until an intimate study is completed.
I've been working on other paintings today, finishing details and getting them ready for the framer later this week. Decision making is the challenge of what to put into an exhibition, especially when I have 10 or 12 choices to make. I'm narrowing it down, but may need your help with the last couple soon.
Today of course is the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and the attack on the World Trade Center in New York. Newfoundland played a role in assisting aircraft and passengers when air traffic was closed over New York and directed to airports across the island. In small towns, not equipped with hotels for large numbers, people were put up wherever there was space, including people's homes. In Gander in particular, Newfoundlanders brought people home with them, fed them, looked after them and developed new friendships along the way. Its always been that way. Now, 10 years later, those who were stranded here, are returning to remember the day and the kindness of strangers and present the town with a piece of the fallen WTC.
