Robert Genn (May 15, 1936 - May 27, 2014)

Robert Genn (May 15, 1936 - May 27, 2014)
Thousands of artists lost a dear friend and teacher this week with the passing of the great Robert Genn.  Most of them never met Mr. Genn face to face but were inspired by his numerous weekly posts about what it means to be an artist.
I had the great good fortune to have a long chat with him before an opening of one of his exhibitions at the Hollander York Gallery.  He almost immediately realized I was a painter and chatted with me as if he had know me all my life. Sweet guy.
