Robert Genn

Last night I received Robert Genn's newsletter "The Painters Keys" informing his subscribers that he has been diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer. Robert described this news as a "The Bomb".

 I only met Robert Genn  once in person at the Sidney paint out competition about 4 years ago where he was juror. However, I've been receiving his biweekly newsletter "The Painters Keys" since 2005.  I've come to look forward to these letters which were his ponderings about art stuff (usually in response to letters from other subscribers).

Although I was one of many thousands of subscribers world wide I looked forward to it in my email as though it were a letter from a friend.  It was insightful, often amusing, thought provoking, and always personal.  Thank you Robert.
