Painter Charles Seliger passed away six weeks ago at the age of 83 from a massive stroke. I just finished reading the Artist Addison Parks' blog Artdeal Magazine and loved what he had to say about his friend Mr. Seliger ; "He was an artist. Artist as poet, explorer, gardener, astronomer, composer, and botanist. Artist as painter." make sure you go to Addison's blog to read his whole post. I was weepy when I was done.
We always hear how anything worthwhile takes time, and you only get out of things what you put into them. These are the lessons that I am now reminded of. Patience to walk through life and take its turns one at a time. Not rushing through it to end up at a dead end. At the end of his life Charles Seliger had gone through his journey participating in it all, giving it his all. We are lucky that he was such a man, that he left his legacy in his art for us to enjoy for generations to come.
