Wow, this series of tintypes by artist Eric Retterbush will stop you in your tracks. I was stunned when recently sent this Washington Post article. The works are a series of tintypes of fellow Americans fighting on the front lines of covid 19. This year has been devastating in so many ways. I feel lucky that my gripes are about fear of losing my business, not fear that my husband or I are on the front lines and could get sick. This series of tintypes took my breath away for a moment as I felt the weight of heavy grief for our nation. I hope you all are moved by these plates, honoring these civilian patriots.
