I just discovered that an old deviant friend had probably passed away about a year ago and I only found out today. Now all that remains on deviant art are his old posts and activity and gallery. Please check them out. It is worth your trouble. Fortunately I had commissioned a painting from him some years ago which I have on my wall, and he also sent me another painting- he claimed by 'accident'. I hope his paintings will not be lost. He was a friendly fellow and I will miss him greatly. What better tribute can one give or hope for for oneself when the time comes?
Tears are streaming down my face.
