How sad, especially to pass that young

I remember how amazed I was the first time that I ever saw one of his paintings. I'm sure he'll be missed in the artistic world.

He was panned by the "art critics"...but I've never much liked the art that the "critics" like anyway. His paintings made people feel good, and there's precious little of that available.

He was my favorite artist too. I was really sorry when I woke up today and read of his passing.

Sorry I couldn't post as TGR on this one. I was really swamped today. TC was my wife's favorite. Of course we could never afford a real one but we have a 11x18 copy of our favorite TC painting "Pronce of Peace in our living room. It's just stunning. Rest in Peace and dance with your King, he always credited Jesus with his gift. God be with his family.

As I am writing this I am using a TK mouse pad. It's 'Sunset at Riverbend farm'. My Moms home had many paintings. She had a purse and an umbrella of his. I bought a pocket calander of his paintings and tore them all out and made a collage for her. We had a gallery here and he came and did a signing. My Mom just cried when he singed one of his prints. We also had a small shop and it had sales of over $40,000 before noon.
