The internet is a funny thing — I am saddened today by the news of death of someone I've never met in person, but have interacted with online. She is an artist in CA and we are members of an internet Artist's Trading Cards (ATC) group. She was always positive, friendly, encouraging, and funny… her art reflects that. I have several tiny artworks of hers that I've traded over the years, and I cherish them. Being a visual artist is kind of a solitary endeavor, and having the opportunity to interact and share with other artists, even if they are across the country is something I am grateful for. Marta died from cancer on Tuesday and I will miss her, along with the other members of the group, I'm sure, and she will always be in our hearts.
