CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, Sept. 6 - Sept. 12, 2002 - 27 CAPE LIFE Artist witla local t:ies featured in 9-11 tribute By Bridin Reynolds-Hughes When artist Kristen Doney was asked to create a work commemo- rating the canine heroes of New York City, she had no hesitations. "'Dogs and Manhattan are my two favorite things, need I say more." she said. Doney, a lifelong artist who lives in Greenwich Village but spends many summer days in Doney is a resident of New York City, where she recently completed an intense project for the American Kennel Club DOGNY Public Art Program to benefit Canine Search and Rescue Heroes. The project was founded in memory of the canines that perished in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center Sept. 11 2001. Rehoboth Beach with her family, has always admired puppies and dogs. "You really learn from dogs to live in the moment: when they take that walk they really enjoy that walk. Those are lessons we should all learn. I have always liked to draw them and show their personality. I am passionate about this project tot" many reasons." said Doney. Living in downtown NYC. Doney was already up close and personal with the tragedy and the DOGNY. sponsored by the American Kennel Club. gave her a chance to find some solace and share it with others. The world has spent a full year trying to comprehend the human loss. but the loss of life did not end there. The AKC DOGNY public art program placed life-size dog stat- ues on the streets and public spaces of New York City to com- memorate the animals lost, some in the line of duty. Doney's intricate- drawings deliver animation and artistry at its finest. When current New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and The AKC Chairman Ronald Menaker initiated the program to honor canines involved in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, they thought of her. "In 1998 I illustrated and helped write a children's book with Mayor Giuliani," said Doney. The artist,decided to depict a canine ticker tape parade, honoring the search and rescue dogs, on the" body of the fiberglass dog she was Continued on page 28 Bridin Reynolds-Hughes photos Artist and book illustrator Kristin Doney has spent several weekends working at Browseabout Books in Rehoboth Beach offering intricate and whimsical shadow box art fea- turing children and their pets at the beach. 9-11 memorial events slated in Cape Churches plan memorial services Sept. 8 Several Cape Region churches will hold memorial services Sunday, Sept. 8.

St. John the Baptist Episcopal Church in Milton Continued on page 28 stores. They are unafraid and have developed quite a level of sophistication about medicine, especially from their own physi- cian, Dr. Phil on "Oprah." We disembark from the car and after dodging several vehicles they make their way into the store and head for their favorite drug store experience, the blood pres- sure machine. Here, if I am fast enough I can catch my grandson insert my granddaughter's head into the cuff, press the start button and watch the blood drain from her face. I quickly use all my rea- soning powers with him, which is mostly pulling the plug from the machine. I have no idea what rea- soning really is though. As I turn my back to deal with my prescrip- tions, my grandson is busy stock piling every plastic weapon on the shelves into the shopping cart. In between telling him to put things like enema tubing back on the shelf, he is racing through the aisles like a coritestant on the tele- vision show, "Supermarket Sweeps." My granddaughter is nowhere in sight, but I' m not too concerned because there have been no announcements for a cleanup in aisle three. I have a few precious minutes before we organize a search party. All of this leaves me breathless as we negotiate our- selves to the check-out counter. As fast as he is throwing things into the cart, I am taking them out. Eventually we compromise on something he has had his eye on since we entered the store: a 12- pack of diet, lemon, no caffeine, cherry Pepsi. I will get the super- size bottle of Turns. The whole experience only reit- erates my thinking that kids are the cutest when they are at the beach. And I mean actually on the beach. You've got to admit one of the cutest things on the beach this summer, were those tiny tots dressed up in their bathing suits and looking like they just stepped out of one of those old Coppertone Sunburn ads. It just doesn't get any better than that. Of course kids off the beach are a different story. And if they belong to you, which means you have to take them home, then we are talking about a whole other chapter. For those of us who am lucky ertough to be grandparents, that casual weekend visit may be a little overwhelming. Recently our daughter dropped off her children while she attend- ed to important personal matters, such as a manicure, facial, pedi- cure, haircut and massage. A simple task like a visit to the drug store can become an eye opener for an otherwise daily rou- tine. Normally, I pull right in to a parking space, quickly walk inside and head straight to the back of the store to pick up my prescriptions. Then I leave just as quickly; the whole errand takes me about 10 minutes. On this particular day, I pull into what I think is a parking AROUND TOWN space. It's hard to tell because the entire inside of the car, including the windshield, door handles, seats and steering wheel is cov- ered in red watercolor paint. Basically it looks like I am employed at some slaughterhouse on the south side of Chicago. Having traces of paint all over you is one of the telltale signs that your grandchildren are visiting. You don't always have red hands though; sometimes the color is a disgusting yellow green - the kind of shade often seen ooz- ing from bugs after you've acci- dentally stepped on them. It often appears when you are about to sign something important, like a speeding ticket. The only way you can remove this childproof paint is with a Black & Decker blowtorch. It's one of the reasons the Queen of England is almost always seen wearing her gloves. In any case, kids love drug Kids are only cute when they're at the beach
