Painting titled Familia de Palazzolo
created in memory of Richard A. Palazzolo
. The painting was commissioned by Richard's twin brother, Ron, and one of two painted for the family. The painting setting is Washington Square Park in New York City. The Twin Towers are depicted in the center of the Washington Arch. In the foreground, a puddle on the street reflects the sky with the towers notably absent. On the right is Richard, depicted in white, reaching out towards his brother, Ron. Behind Richard is a man dressed in a pink suit next to a white vehicle. At Richard's feet is a black backpack, a multicolored flag or perhaps ribbons, and a New York City Marathon runner's bib with the number 15563. On the left is Ron, depicted sitting on the open trunk of a blue station wagon. He is wearing a tan t-shirt and jean shorts. A set of dog tags are visible around his neck. In his hands he holds the corner of a large American flag that is spread out over his feet and onto the street. He is also holding a long green ribbon. Sitting behind Ron is the boys' mother Annette wearing a long dark purple dress. Another man stands behind her. Annette holds the frame of a large black and white wedding photo, presumably of her and her husband. Also visible is an identical New York City Marathon runner's bib with the number 15564. Also depicted in the painting is a red Thunderbird, a pigeon, an old yellow taxi cab, a hot dog vendor cart, and a New York Times delivery truck.
