I’m going to make this a short post, but figured that I should let visitors to the site know that my good friend, Jean-Marie Baveux, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Monday the 16th of March after losing his battle with skin cancer. He leaves behind his wife, Angel, and his two daughters, Lola and Danaé.
One positive thing to report at least is that two of the four paintings he offered for sale recently have found new homes and the other two are earmarked for purchase. The money from these sales is to be put away in trust for his daughters.
The picture you can see is from 2013 when I met up with Jean-Marie (white shirt) in Bayeux during mine and Sarah’s honeymoon. It was the only time I met with him ‘in real life’, but I remember it fondly and we shared an online friendship for many years.
Adieu, mon ami.
