West Coast Painting & Rest In Peace Aunt Paulette


Just got back from a short trip to beautiful Vancouver Island, Canada (the northern neighbor of Washington, to place it on a map for you). It wasn't a painting trip. My family and I went to visit my Aunt, who was sick with lung cancer. Tragically, my Aunt, still in her 60s, passed away before my family and I arrived at her house. She was an incredible person, and played a profound role in my own life. My Uncle asked me if I'd like to put one of the above paintings in my Aunt's coffin, to be cremated with her. I chose the boat painting, because it's probably the best of the three, and I think best relates to her. The painting now exists amongst the ashes of my Aunt. It's doubtful that I'll ever do another painting that will reach that level of personal significance.

Hahaha, thanks Kelly.
I have moved on from getting my ass kicked virtually by Wes, to getting my ass kicked in real life by Joel, playing squash. Oh, and by Alvin lifting weights.

I wanted to say I have had the privilege of knowing your aunt and her family for over 3o+ years. Your gift of love will be forever cherished by all of them.
You are a very talented young man. I know your Aunt loved paintings from all her travels but the one with her always, will be yours.

The time Paulette spent with you and Adam as youngsters was cherished. She had so many fond memories,and was looking forward to your family visit. The gift you gave her was YOU, Marco. Thanks for the tribute to a remarkable sister.
