This is a painting of my daughter under the lit colonnade in Christopher Columbus park on the waterfront in Boston, MA on the evening that the city-wide lockdown was lifted, several days after the Boston Marathon bombings in April 2013.  My daughter, a city resident, was happy and relieved to be able to venture out again into a mild April evening.  I loved the way the lights of the colonnade  resembled a halo above her head. ( I was reminded of imagery of the Catholic Virgin Mary, with a celestial blue sky and golden stars forming her halo. )  Painted 2013.
