||Ted Kennedy was a gifted artist.
One of his paintings was of the Hyannis Port Compound as seen from the
water. I was inspired to paint him sailing away from his own painting.
I began the painting of Senator
Ted Kennedy, titled "At The Helm", two hours before I heard the news
of his passing, and I worked on it through the next few days, while listening
to the TV coverage of his memorial and funeral.
Each day I posted an updated photo
of the painting, until it was finished on September 16. I received
heart warming emails from folks that who followed the progress of the painting
online. "At The Helm" appeared in an issue of Cape Code
