Re: Stirling/mike Rip....you Will Be Missed Greatly!

He has a bit of immortality here in WetCanvas. Here's one of his last works to be posted.

Re: Stirling/mike Rip....you Will Be Missed Greatly!

this is terrible news... I really liked Mike a lot, I loved his work and used to look forward to his posts andd comments on my work... Mike, you will be missed by a youngish man sitting on his boat in Northampton... rest in peace... Paul

I am going to copy this thread over in the WC Garden of memories, where there is a thread for Ann already.
Please add any further condolences and memories there.

I, too, am saddened by this news. Mike's watercolors of cats, horses, birds were a wonder to see, and his signature "Best from mike" always brought a smile. My condolences to his family.

Re: Stirling/mike Rip....you Will Be Missed Greatly!

That is sooo sad to hear...thought he was such a wonderful painter. Makes one think of their own mortality (esp. the older I get). My condolences to his family at this sad time.

Re: Stirling/mike Rip....you Will Be Missed Greatly!

Oh, I am so heartsore to read that Mike is no longer with us. I just loved him and his wonderful watercolours were an inspiration. He was always so encouraging and took time to comment on many many works. I shall miss him so much. My deepest sympathy to his loved ones.
