Unhappy IMPORTANT - Very sad news

I am very sad to tell you all that Deano, our dear friend here for more than 10 years, passed away yesterday afternoon.

He hadn't been well for a long time but loved to paint for the WDE each week.

He loved this forum, to the extent that in the early hours of yesterday morning when he felt so unwell, he left a note for his neighbour and in it he asked his friend to let me know so I could inform all his friends here.

My heart is full and I know yours will be too.

RIP Deano.


A selection of his works from my hostings ~

So sad, he was a great supporter of everyone who participated in the WDEs in addition to being a wonderful artist. He and Connie can paint together now.

Very sad news. Deano was a superb painter who took an affectionate and positive view of the world.

Re: IMPORTANT - Very sad news

How very sad.... he was such a talented painter. My favourite painting was one he did of my dear beagle at the beginning of Sept 2014.
May he rest in peace.

Oh no. What a tremendous loss. I bought one of his paintings a few years back and so glad, especially now, to have this remembrance and inspiration.

Re: IMPORTANT - Very sad news

OH NO! I'm shocked and saddened by this news! He was such a fantastic painter. He painted several oils my family and friends purchased that made us all happy. But that is the job of the artist! To inspire and uplift. I'll keep his family in my prayers. Thanks Maureen for letting us know.

I never knew the man but I feel like I did. He had a wonderful gift that will live on in his beautiful paintings. How terribly sad that he is gone. I will miss him.

Re: IMPORTANT - Very sad news

I am shocked- I did not know he was not well. He was such a fixture here at AMAE, and enjoyed by all of us. You would never know by his cheerful demeanor that he was not in good health. He will be missed.
