Robert Genn's Passing
Sailing on Little Manitou, SK
As some of you may know by now, Robert Genn has passed on. He was the gentleman who originated the Painters Keys internet site that has since gone on to be a magnet to thousands of people worldwide with an interest in reading his online letters and ruminations on Art and related matters. Robert Genn was a wonderful Canadian artist, his paintings are instantly recognizable. He was witty, funny, well versed, philosophical and so generous. It is hard to imagine how he found the time to do his twice weekly letters and still manage a busy schedule of painting and related business but he did. I will be indebted to him as I go out on my own plein air excursions, another thing that he excelled at. So thank you Robert for your example of how to be human. Also thanks to his daughter Sara for continuing on with his legacy.
