The first musician portrait I painted was in 1998, and my subject was Linda Hornbuckle. For the painting (which appeared on her CD “Clearly”) I photographed her at Music Millenium, and later in her living room as she sang. Sadly, Linda passed away last week, after a two year battle with cancer. I will always remember this beautiful woman and her beautiful voice. The community will always remember her as the great soul diva of the Northwest. Tonight, I am donating a large print of the painting at “More Love for Linda”, an all-star benefit to help with her medical costs.

I remember the first time you saw her perform. Ultimately your shared impressions of each other were reciprocal.
Thank you for introducing us. She was such a wonderful person, and I’m so glad I got to know her. Still miss her.
