Nil Catalano

Its with a very heavy heart that I write this post.

Yesterday evening I had an email from one of Nil's friends, to say that Nil had passed away from a bacterial infection.

I knew Nil from his blog and his paintings.
He had a wonderful way with watercolour, his work so clean and bright and full of love. We chatted via the comments and Nil said to me once if we were neighbours, we would surely be great neighbours, sharing a love of watercolour and a love of dogs.
You'll be greatly missed, Nil.

Condolences to your family and friends, their loss is a great one.
Heaven gains a fabulous painter and a decent human being.
I'm proud to have had the honour of knowing you, via the net.
God bless.
xx

If you'd like to see Nil's paintings, HERE is his legacy.
