View Full Version : Adriana Meiss

I received the following message:
I am Martin Meiss, the husband of Adriana Meiss, who for a long time was active on Wet Canvas, having started 50 threads, primarily, I believe, on the "Soft Pastels" and "Pastel Talk" channels.

Three and a half years ago Adriana was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Since that time she underwent four different chemotherapy regimens, and during it all she maintained her love of painting and produced many fine works, primarily in oils more recently. On January 31st Adriana died in our living room surrounded by people who loved her. She was still painting until just after Christmas, when a stroke (probably engendered by the chemotherapy and the cancer itself) left her bedridden, but even now she has a show running in the Edgewood Gallery here in Syracuse, NY. Her love of nature and of life itself still vibrates in her paintings, for us the living to experience and learn from.

I think she would like a way to say good-bye to her Wet Canvas friends. Could you please post the above paragraph on the appropriate threads, or tell me the best way to do it?

Thank you very much.

Oh what a shame, my deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
