I painted this watercolor painting "Looking Up to Old Glory" just days after 9/11/01. I felt scared, anxious for what would come next in our country. My husband was on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf and I had not spoken (really emailed) with him since the morning of 9/11, I watched the news 24 hours a day hoping to catch word of his ship and find out where he was. To this day when I look at this painting and think about our world then, I get so emotional I can't control my tears. On this day, I keep all the families that lost a loved one or dear friend close to my heart -- and will look to Old Glory for comfort. #neverforget
