The Attack

The Attack, gouache, acrylic, and cotton, 12 x 16", 2013


The Attack – In April 2013, the Boston Marathon bombings shook the world and especially those of us here in Boston. Perhaps because I teach children and feel so connected to their lives, I was devastated especially by the death of eight year old Martin Richard. The news printed many photos of Martin before the tragedy but no one spoke of exactly how he died.

Having lived in Europe and viewed many Gothic paintings which vividly portray death, I imagined Martin’s final moments.
