Jorge Royan died a year ago today. He and Cathy Johnson both had an incredible affect on my path through watercolors, in very different ways. Thankfully, I can tell Cathy how much gratitude I have for her and for the forum she produced.
But Jorge? Can you hear me in the world you now inhabit? The group you put me into with the other 149 people you culled has been a blessing. I’ve made art friends from around the world, and like you, they are mostly giving souls who share and tell it like it is. The influence of the group is exponential in terms of helping me to rediscover and to learn a new path of the last third of my life; watercolors, sketching, a return to architecture, color, color color (though that was not your forte.) I humbly thank you again, as I will again and again.
Thank those who affect you positively. Let them know what a blessing they are. Life is short.
Below, my last conversation with him.

Just try to be somebody worth knowing.” ~ JR
And in my last interaction on the feed, we talked about him not being an artist. As. If.
