I received word last night that another painting friend passed from us. Floyd Gibson was a member of the SWAP (SharingWithArtistPartners) group for a long time and many had paintings from Floyd. But it wasn't just the paintings that meant so much. It was all the positive and kind comments Floyd made to everyone all the time. He was a gentle, giving, caring soul and I hope he is with his lovely Angie again and they are watching the sunset together.
I am honored and a bit awed to discover that I was the recipient of Floyd's last SWAP painting. It says so much with its simplicity and almost zen-like quality. Perhaps it says where Floyd was in this stage of his life, too. If that's so, it was a good place.
Happy painting, Floyd, wherever your latest travels lead you. You will be missed.
