Currently unavailable for purchase

Original Sold, Oct 08.
Full sheet Arches 300gsm (stretched with nail gun)

Based on a photo of people viewing the construction taking place in Ground Zero.

The viewing platform, inside the American Express Building, was originally a marble wall but was replaced with glass when the building was repaired after 9/11 so that people could come and view the area. The people were respectfully quiet as they look on as the site was being rebuilt.

    Speaking as a retired architect, this work is great. Speaking as a watercolorist, this work is great. Glad you could be there to capture the scene.

    I am so impressed – I love this painting! The yellow against the blue sings, and the figures and their reflections are wonderful.

    Superb and imagivative use of watercolour, Marion.

    Especially poignant, concerning the subject.
    The predominant 2 colours – primaries of blue and yellow, are particularly visually appealing.
