May Ray Strong Rest in Peace

John Iwerks had it right this morning in the News-Press article about the passing of artists Ray Strong at 101: "He's not gone," Mr. Iwerks said. "He's with us in his paintings, and in his words and our memories."

Strong was an incredible artist and a moving force in our community, he will be missed.

A real treat was seeing the film "Vanishing Landscapes" at its premiere in the 2005 SB film festival. Ray Strong was featured in the film, and we also had the pleasure of having him there in the audience. He sometimes spoke while the film was playing, adding to the narration and giving us all a very unique and touching experience on that day.

He was/is an inspiring artist. If you are not familiar with him or his work, you can check it out at
