An Artistic Journey
Mark Bando is a friend and former classmate at Cass Technical High School who lost his son in the Orlando massacre...
Peggy Brewer is a prolific artist who is currently painting a series of works in memory of victims of terrorist attacks around the world. This oil painting was done to remember my son and the 48 other murder victims of the PULSE shooting in Orlando in June, 2016. Each of her works features a different stylized version of the Christian Cross, and Peggy presented me with the original rendering of the Orlando painting. It will hang in our house, in remembrance of my son Chris Andrew and of all the others who were massacred in Orlando.

"Cross for Orlando," Oil
Here are more crosses from the Cross Series, as well as other images relating to Christian themes, created over many years, some long before 9/11 and the terrorist activities of today ....Peggy
