This was a personal piece I made for myself in late 2001 in a small way to try to come to terms with 9-11 and it's effect on my home, friends, and myself. As a child I grew up near N.C. Wyeth's family in Pennsylvania and his painting (The Giant) hung in the dining hall of my school. I never knew how lucky I was to grow up with such inspiration so close and to be surrounded in a peaceful environment with wonderful people. After 9-11 I took solace in thinking back on more simpler times and wanted to pay homage to my friends, school and the hope of our future. Moving forward I can see the new One World Trade from our Brooklyn roof... rise above the Manhattan skyline. It brings hope and excitement but I will always remember The Giants and a New York from simpler more innocent times. Read Less
