My watercolor classes and I painted this door last week. I stood in front of this door in the town of Cortona with my first traveling student, Tom. We both leaned against a pile of lumber which was just the right height to use as a desk. Tom was a talented painter and wonderful student and friend. He always had a smile on his face, never complained and always enjoyed art classes and painting. Sadly, Tom passed away last month and is sorely missed by myself and all his watercolor pals. I know we are all kind of waiting for him to amble into class with a grin on his face. I hope he is upstairs painting a rainbow.
