|My art incorporates a variety of styles and adaptability, reflecting the variety of my interests, and experience.|
And suddenly, we are diminished once more.
I am deeply saddened and shocked by news of the death of artist and teacher Glen Orbik today. I never knew he was battling cancer. I planned to take one of his painting courses in the very near future. I feel so awful, never having known he was sick. And my heart goes out to Laurel, and the rest of his family. We have lost a great talent, a truly sublime talent, and a very fine human being.
I am so very devastated. What a dark day.
But, in the end, I am so blessed to have called him a friend. It was a privilege to have swapped stories with him at the Hard Rock Cafe so long ago, to have shared laughter, and fellowship, and to have received such warm encouragement from him. I will keep him in my memory now, as bright and influential a presence as ever he was.
Good-bye, Glen. And thank you so much.
