What happened on Tuesday September 25th?

I don't know about you, but it seems to me that to many talented people are dying latley. The Canadian art world has just lost Ken Danby. He passed away on sunday while on a canoe trip in Algonquin Park.

Danby was what is called a realist. He painted the world as he saw it, as you would capture it with a camera. His work included nature, animals and iconic Canadian scenes.

Danby was a artist known during his lifetime, he was able to make a living doing what he loved. I hope that he passed with as little pain as possible, doing something he has always enjoyed.
