an artist left handed and with great awareness of life
who used shades of colour so true and varied on canvas
slight in frame but strong in friendship and integrity
a smiling round face with perceptive eyes that saw all.
A lonely man who never envied nor wished more for himself
a person full of passions in Iife and for all its seasons
whether they be either winter, spring, summer or autumn
each period gave an inspiration to create a new dimension.
you leave behind a legacy so very very diverse in your
lasting works that so depict natural pictures landscapes
seascape or still life they are your estate as each canvas
holds part of a story of a kind life.
Dear friend and brother, I say farewell be at peace within
the landscape of your short life.
