Art and Beauty Tuesday--Ricardo Santos-Alfonso

This is Ricardo Santos-Alfonso's painting My Dream-Vision That Day in 9/11.  It is an abstract piece using oils, mainly in reds and blacks, to express the horror of the world on the day the Twin Towers in New York were taken down by 2 hijacked airplanes.

The painting can be viewed and purchased here.

it is indeed very vivid imagery is it not? it truly does capture that horrible day in fullness. it is well done indeed!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
