Charles died June 14, 2014, at home, age 79. As always, he was brave; as always, he was loving. He stayed with us as long as he could. As an artist, Charlie was devoted to art as revelation. Every blade of grass and every ray of light received its due from his brush. As a friend, he was compassionate; he asked no questions and made no judgements. His family and I are grateful to everyone who loved him in his life. To those of you who loved art, we thank you.
