I am so saddened to hear of David's death. He was a true friend. I met him when I chaired Fine Art in the Park in Jonesborough. We became friends and often he would stop by my house to show me pictures of a waterfall. Then, as he began painting the waterfall, he'd stop by to ask my opinion. He asked me several times to take him to Cheap Joe's (an art supply store in Boone NC). I never took the time to take him and I regret that. I truly am at a loss for words. David was a kind, sweet and truly talented man.
