RIP ColorMeSunny!

A friend and member of the watercolor forums passed away yesterday, March 12th.

You may know her by her screen name ColorMeSunny!, her real name was JoAnn Naylor. She was a friend and fellow artist here in our home town of Petaluma. Always busy and active helping with the local art club and showing her own works in many venues around the county.

She had been feeling unwell since January when she had a bout with the flu.
On Friday, March 6th she drove herself to the local hospital. She thought she had pneumonia, but as it turned out, she was in the last stages of lung cancer.

She'll be missed by many of us here.

Re: RIP ColorMeSunny!

What a thoughtful thing to do, posting this notice. I am glad she got a chance to share with us, and she will be missed. Of course we share in your grief. May you remember her fondly and that way she will never really seem like she is gone, after all, artists never are forgotten, all we have to do is view their work.

Re: RIP ColorMeSunny!

Maria,

Thank you for letting us know about JoAnn's death. I'm sure she will be missed by all who knew her.

I have added her name to the Wet Canvas Garden of Memories forum.

Sylvia

Re: RIP ColorMeSunny!

I made a point of going to Petaluma to meet JoAnn a couple of years ago when I was taking a class nearby; she was a lovely lady, in addition to being a fine artist. I'm so very sorry to hear that she's died, Maria, and I know you must just be devastated. Very sad...

Oh, no. I really enjoyed her on the forums here and learned a lot from her posts and paintings. I'm sorry to hear she's died.

I hope you and your friends in the local club are holding up well.

Re: RIP ColorMeSunny!

Thank you all for your kind words and condolences.

All of us here in the Petaluma art community are very saddened by her sudden death. JoAnn was a very kind soft spoken lady who was a tireless worker for our community.

She left behind a husband, two children and grandchildren and our hearts go out to them.

She will by sorely missed
