An update on the life of Grant 1954-2011
January 15, 2011- Most of you know Grant as a painter, some from his work as a physiotherapist, many more as a friend, and a select few as family, When Grant was creating this painting he was also beginning a battle with cancer. His motto was "paint while I still can," and he did this successfully. The sheer joy of the paint even when it wouldn't seem to go where he wanted it to go was one of the strong memories of Grant's latter days in his studio.
Through December and early January, Grant was in the last few days of the battle. The many friends and family that were able to visit him in Abbotsford and later at Mission Memorial knew him as an active physio teacher and listener, even to the end. At the end he was surrounded by family and friends in hospice, as "it's not right for man to be alone."
He now is seeing light that never fades, more colours than he ever imagined, and painting with paints that never dry (until you want them to). He has the great privilege of knowing the truth of the promise of where he was ultimately going and getting there before us, just to find the best en plein air easel spaces to show us, and painting masterpieces for his next show.
We will all miss him but are all better for having known him.
