    I met Paul in his studio in 2014 while visiting Beaufort from St. Louis. Every year when we’d come down for our vacation, I’d stop by to try and catch him working. As a pastel artist myself, Paul gave me so much useful information that helped me become a much better artist. When I teach art classes, I always refer to Paul as the master pastel artist. His clouds were something no one I know is able to reproduce. I visited his studio today and bought one of his pieces to cherish for the rest of my life. Melissa and I could still feel a very strong presence of Paul’s sweet spirit in his work space. I was touched to see an unfinished piece of work on his desk which brought me to tears. I admired his willingness to always stop working to talk and tell me some of his drawing secrets. I had no idea he had been ill, and my heart aches that such a talent is gone. It is my prayer that he is at peace and that he now paints the scenic hillsides of heaven. I’ll miss you my friend. I wish I could have had the opportunity to get to know you better. Your life was a testament in itself, and I only hope that people speak of me when I’m gone they way they speak of you. You will be missed… See you soon on the other side…

    Dear Jan
    I knew Paul from OSU. We’re lived in the same dormitory and always admired his art work. I just found this death notice. I haven’t seen him since he lived in New England years ago. Would think of him in the month of May over the years(related to his birthday month )and would wonder how he was doing. My condolences to you on the loss of your Paul. I lost my husband of 37 years, Bill in 2016. We are too young to be widows, I think. I regret that I never bought any of Paul’s artwork, I remember a very small painting he did maybe back in the 70’s of a replica of a painting by Rembrandt, (a side view portrait of a man with a head wrapping on his head) . We hung with a group of friends at OSU who loved art and music and enjoyed student art installations way back then. Paul was a great artist, and such a peaceful soul. Many blessings to you.
