  3. Thanks Linda.
    A very sad day.
    (This painting was done some time ago. It depicts Boston Firefighters at the 1972 tragic Vendome Hotel fire in Boston, Massachusetts. Thought it was appropriate today .)
    Take care.

  4. Yes, it speaks volumes on this day and without being too overt.
    That is your strength Michael.

    The firefighters low in the composition makes it seem like an impossible job, but they still go.

    Keep painting...

    1. David,
      Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such wonderful comments. I so much appreciate your support. Sometimes it is hard for me to post my art work because at times it is so personal. I want to make sure my work shows the tremendous respect and admiration I have for the heroic firefighters all over the world.
      I will keep painting. You also!
      Michael

  5. I really impressed by your painting. I have seen the fire in your painting. I felt a blow. My work for 26 years is a fireman, and artist. I do not say more.
    Your friend artist and firefighter in Spain

  6. Ciao Michael,
    a me dà l'idea di un'immagine apocalittica dove forze umane e forze della natura si incontrano-scontrano, si intrecciano...
    Bellissimi effetti!
    Ciao, ciao, a presto, Floriana

    It is wonderful for me to read what you wrote. It makes me look at my work over again in a new and exciting way! You are right about firefighters. They do so much and risk everything for so many. They should be honored every day.

    1. Susan,
      Thank you so much for your incredible comment. I am sorry I am late in replying. I am humbled by your gratitude and I am very sorry for all of us who shared those "indescribable" feelings you mentioned for those who lost their lives and the loved ones left behind.
      Take care.

  10. Dear Michael,

    A beautiful tribute for a very very sad day :( I remember it like it was yesterday, I'm a native NYer and had many friends who were in that area. You captured the moment. It does not need a title, each person will add their own. Very emotional piece, my friend.
    Hugs xo
