It is with the heaviest of hearts that we post this message:
Master Artist (and dear friend) Martin passed away Saturday 8/20/11 after an 8 month battle with pancreatic cancer. He passed on at home, peacefully, with his loved ones by his side.
Martin, true to his wonderful character, never complained about bad days, kept his wonderful sense of humor intact, fought until the end.
We will miss him terribly. We all take comfort that he is in a well deserved, better place.
He made those lucky enough to be immediately around him happy, and touched thousands upon thousands more through his brilliant art.
Like all the great artists, he will live forever -here on earth- through his wonderful paintings.
"May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand"
