« It’s a great honor to be shown in the main Library of Pasadena, an institution broadly recognized as a historic center of culture and social memory. I thank The Honorable Terry Tornek, Mayor of the City of Pasadena, and the executive members of his council for their indispensable support. Especially thank to The Honorable Vice Mayor John Jackson Kennedy for his sponsorship and magnanimity. He and his entire Family have supported my work for the past decade and he is expressing through this philanthropic gift his love of the arts and his devotion to the spiritual welfare of all members of this Honorable Community. I’m deeply grateful that he has chosen to offer to Pasadena this painting of mine.
