Been thinking of my friend and Mentor, Patricia Whitty. Look her up on line...a fabulous photo realist in museum collections and public works mostly in the New Orleans area but also all over the US. She died Tuesday the 15th of July of brain cancer. She gave her fame, prestige and teaching talent to Taylor Gallery, my gallery in Slidell, and 'classed' us up enough to be recognized by the New Orleans critics as a respected gallery in a little podunk town. Amazing in that area. She was such a lovely generous and supurbly talented artist and taught me so much. She will be greatly missed.
