The Miracle

The US Airways Flight 1549 (Airbus 320) was the successful emergency landing which occurred on the Hudson River in New York, on January 15, 2009, only six minutes after takeoff from LaGuardia Airport. Three minutes into the air, the flight struck a flock of Canada Geese. The captain was a former fighter pilot who left the Air Force in 1980. Some curious details allude to this miracle as being the "most successful ditching in aviation history" (Wikipedia, 2009). The image in this painting has been taken from one of the live photographs. Passengers are seen above evacuating onto the wings of the plane.

Portraits, World Events, War        
                                                      
One reason to focus on painting World Events, especially those related to war, is primarily because our worlds, our countries have been formed and colored by war for thousands of years.

Nothing is more horrific than war and when we view war as it really is, our comfortable lives that we live from day to day are sheer paradise in comparison to real war.

Portraits lie at the other extreme for people are the flowers that bloom from war.
People are precious as life is precious and exist as a side-result of war, or by the grace of God, or Divinity, or Love or whichever form a person may perceive the reason for being is.

Studying history and the events of Hiroshima, a few days after the initial blast, massive, gigantic flowers began to bloom from the soil.

A strange coincidence, for one could imagine the blooming of the flowers was somehow related to the devastating amount of radiation.

So, on one hand, we have the delicacy of a human soul with spirit, and at the other extreme we have the nightmare of war.

And these two elements append and harmonize together on the continuum of life.
