In memory of David Whitaker

I came across an artist recently who reminded me of David Whitaker. David, an amazing artist, passed away a couple years ago and his pieces and character are still with me. I worked with him about 6 years ago and ran a half marathon at Stonehenge in England with him that same year. Although the beauty of the landscape was indescribable, I still needed my ipod to get me over the cross country hills. When I got to the end, he was standing in a robe enjoying the scenery. I asked how he ran without music, he said “I run so that I can be one with the elements”. He words are so simple and loaded at the same time, as are his works. The world lost an amazing man and artist when he passed, but his pieces are still with us.

Stephane Dafflon, the artist below, is the artist who brought to mind my old friend. He currently shows in Paris, France and although his works are far different from Whitaker, I find a similar peace in their paintings.
