I was working on a companion piece to this, using a technique she pioneered, when I heard that Helen Frankenthaler had died. It was a tough week for heroes, John Chamberlain also left us. Is it just me or does anyone else think so many great human beings seem to die at the end of the year? Yaclav Havel!

Lovely piece, Randall. I was just looking through my art books today; I have a number on Frankenthaler's work (she's always been a favorite painter of mine).

I agree that this year so many wonderful people have left us, all too many wonderful artists and writers. Eva Zeisel, the magnificent ceramist, also has died. I would love to have met her.

Wishing you wonder and beauty and the creation of many more fine paintings. Thank you for all that you add to our lives.
