It is with great sadness that I add to this forum the passing of a dear friend and wonderful artist, Luke (saintlukesguild
). I received an email from his family a few days ago that he died at home on March 1st.
He was often helpful, funny, quick-witted and sometimes downright contentious! But I always took his advice on art and life and he helped make me a better person.
Funny thing I found yesterday while looking for his obit, was a Facebook page created just this past January, with a self portrait that is truly him.
I've attached it here because he would have appreciated my doing so.
It is my hope that he will be remembered by his contributions here and the friendships he made along the way.
