I am not sure what to say. I painted this today but my heart is broken. So many sirens driving by. No one speaking. Crazy homeless, now are the only steady element in the park. People are trying to work and be normal but I tell you it is rough. We will overcome but it will be in a new world. Thanks to everyone here for your love.
I know it is not finished but it is the best I could do in the lighted time.

I think you portrayed the feeling of sadness very well in this painting. The people look lost and without direction, almost floating. The colors, though beautiful are muted, except for that slash of red in the center.
I like this painting.
I would like to see more.

Simon, great painting. Happy to know you are well!

Incredible tragedy.

I always pray and wish safety to our relatives and friends in Israel and now I do for our friends in New York and for us all ...never thought anything like this horror could be possible in USA.

Pure sorrow.

Julia

Don't touch it! It's finished... Time has stopped. It will be difficult to heal.

Very Painterly!
Well done. You've managed to paint a dark sunny day and that is no small accomplishment.
Gald you're o.k.

Very strong painting.
I've been very restless the last couple of days. Feel my heart is there instead of here.
You're not alone, for what it's worth.

I see how hard it was

It is late and this is the first time I had to look.
That new feel of paint is very evident but I know there is no voice behind this yet.
I am waiting to see what the oilsticks will bring. (I hate it that it makes the work downtown hard, but the cleaner air is such a blessing. Breathing in and out safely makes a difference.)

You are finding a way to put it all to work. Your efforts at telling the tale about what you are living and seeing are bound to pay off. You are getting the vocabulary for an encyclopaedia of artistic tales to tell.

I wanted to tell you that the church where jesus parks his cross up here has a full campground of better quality tents and the usual cardboard. Odd looking, but it is true, the new class of homeless are so much like you and I. I admire the stamina of the species! We are such an amazing adaptive animal. Your new homeless are pushing the usual residents up and out. We are closer together as a whole now.
I am waiting to see the results on you. You have a lot inside your head and a lot more waiting to come out of your brush.
love ya
dj*
