So early the next morning after arriving in that New York suburb, I got on a commuter train that took me into the heart of Manhatten. I took a long bus ride to Soho (arts district), walked a long time to find the right address--but the gallery I wanted was closed on Mondays. I'd also wanted to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art--I was so looking forward to seeing an original Jackson Pollok painting! But it, too, was closed on Mondays!
However, I did find the NEWSWEEK building. I did find someone to talk to, but only to leave my picture of the painting and letter . . . with a promise the photographer, or the department, or somebody with authority, would contact me. It never happened, and I've never 'had time' to insert this research into my workloads since then. Therefore, "My Lord!", the title of this painting, hangs on the wall of my Star of the North Studio waiting for some breakthrough of Christa's ring and watch so I can finish the work...and sign it.
NOTE: Probably ten years ago my daughter gave me a copy of a book about Christa written by her mother. In it I learned that she was wearing her grandmother's diamond watch. I don't know if the watch she's wearing in the NEWSWEEK photo is that watch. Also, I think it was in 1991, I went to Florida and Cape Canaveral. (I don't think it was Cape Kennedy yet.) There in a museum I saw other paintings of Christa and the Challenger astronauts. However, none were like mine; none had God as it's Foundation with a message of the most profound Love and healing in the Universe.
