"The morning of September 11, 2001,
I woke up unusually early at 5:30am. I
decided to paint. I started this composition.
At around 7:00am I went back to sleep.
When I woke up at 10:30am, I heard the
news. Later, when I looked at the picture,
I decided to leave it as is, just added
the date, the glaze and the signature."
