    Hi Mike – life is probably more challenging for the world today than it was on that day fifteen years ago … but it was horrific – and I certainly hope it never happens again …

    Very evocative painting … I rather wish the ‘ful’ part of hopeful wasn’t quite so messy and looking unintended and as though it was meant to be something else … but it’s very atmospheric.

    We hope things won’t get worse … Hilary

      The world is different in many ways. There are other concerns, different concerns than then, but the world muddles on.
