We just found out a couple of hours ago via Facebook that Mom’s favorite artist, Reinoldo Antonio Ferrer III, who has been fighting brain cancer, passed away at his home surrounded by his loved ones. Mom “met” Artist Ray through the magic that is WordPress (urbanwallart, emotionsoncanvas).
We are deeply saddened by this terrible loss to the art community and to life as well. “Artist Ray” made the portrait of me (Maggie) not long after I was adopted.
Ray will live on forever in our hearts and through his work. May he rest in peace knowing he was respected and loved, and that he touched the hearts and souls of many.
Mom was hoping that his artwork would grace the cover of her first book, but now Ray will not see that. We are all very, very, sad today, and send our love to Ray’s family.
Thank you, Artist Ray, for being an artist for the people.
Sadly, Maggie and Family
