in remembrance of the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School

this piece started out on a legal pad
just after Thanksgiving

my first painting on an 8" wooden round paint panel

the panels are made by American Easel, llc
and are made in the U.S.A.

purchased from Dick Blick

I thought it was done on Wednesday, December 12th
after I painted 18 stars across the top.
After Friday, December 14th ... I added 2 more stars, in remembrance of the 20 bright little children that were lost that day from this earth during the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in Connecticut. 

with my own version of the words of Luke from the Bible ...

 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace,
good will toward men. ~ Luke 2:14
King James Version (KJV)

Prayers for the Sandy Hook Elementary School Families


  1. I'm still having a hard time thinking about the the loss of those beautiful children and the heartache it has brought to their families and to those who knew and loved them. Your painting is a lovely tribute.
    Be well my friend and best wishes for a happy new year. Hugs

  2. A beautiful tribute to the children and heroic staff who also lost their lives trying to protect the children. My heart aches for them all ... Your art is awesome!

  3. What a beautiful painting and tribute. It's still so hard to grasp the immense tragedy all around. Wishing you HPPF and a happy 2013.


thx for the note! i do appreciate your time!
