I received news today that my teacher, mentor and friend
Bart Parker died at his home in Alabama today. Bart was
a lifelong inspiration to me and so many other
students and touched the lives of many more. No one is ever lost who is
remembered by those who keep his memory alive, I shall not
forget all that Bart did for me and I owe who I am today as an
artist to Bart and his influences. Fair winds & calm seas Mr. Parker,
dream on you crazy dreamer.
