Part 2 Tribute to Nick

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 11:52 AM






Whether you knew him well, or were just an acquaintance, it did not matter, at least to him it didn't, as he treated everyone with the same love and respect.  There is no doubt, that he touched the lives of many, a fact he was always surprised about.  It humbled him, and he was truly grateful for the friends he has met here.

It is that rarest of people, who could reach over mountains and oceans and touch all of our hearts.  From every corner of the globe, to every walk of life, no matter your ethnic background, your political or religious views, no matter the color of your skin, or even if you spoke English, it did not matter to him, as he considered you all friends, and many, a part of his family.

He was your confidant, your mentor, your biggest supporter, your shoulder to cry on, your voice of reason and logic, and your cherished friend. He was all of those, to all of you, a person you could always count on, to always be there.  He would listen to all of you, with every concern or problem you had, he would listen, giving 100% of himself to making you feel better.  It did not matter if it was art related or personal, you could always count on him to be there.

Here is a collection of beautiful works dedicated to Nick :iconshedboy68:
He was a great friend to us all and he will be surely missed :heart:
He inspired us, encouraged us and supported us to be great.
RIP Nick xoxo

Stars have birthdays.Hey people. I hope you're enjoying your weekend, as much as you can. Today is a special day,and I am not talking about the weather(damn it's so hot outside,I can fry eggs on my car,if I had a car) I am talking about the people who are born today. Happy Birthday for everyone , but I feel like this is not everything I want to say.  Because today, It's Nick birthday :heart: :heart: :iconshedboy68:
... And I heard so many things about my dead grandma,when it was her birthday, people keep telling me  that is a waste of time to celebrate for her.
No,this is not a waste of time. This will never be. Everybody deserves a  little birthday party,a little birthday gift, no matter where s/he is,no matter what s/he is doing.
And today,more than never,our Nick deserves everything, no matter if we can't see him,because he can see us. And this is so important.He died before his birthday to come,and this is heartbreaking, but our relationship with him is still the same. He still loves us,
  Nick Stone- dedication poemA gentlemen cannot explain your kindness,
A smile as bright as yours cannot hide,
Hide behind the darkest clouds,
Like a star you glow in darkness,
Digital art was your golden star,
Excellent at it, it was your hearts desire,
Nothing could stop you from,
Making a masterpiece,
Your honestly could bring out,
The true colours in people,
Showing who was worth,
Your precious time,
While you may be gone,
You will be remembered,
For your charming skills,
And breath taking art,
We will keep your,
Legacy of art alive,
Keeping you alive in,
Our memories will make,
You stay in our hearts,
A little while longer,
Goodbye and let your soul,
Protect those who need,
Your comforting presence.

August 12.2014. Interview 35.

Journal Entry: Thu Aug 21, 2014, 5:21 AM


Hi guys!

Today interview with Sylvia from USA, at dA : 5 years.

First Light by Sillybilly60

:bulletblue: 1 Which type of art are You creating ?
Sillybilly60 - I like all kinds of art, not too much into abstract or too contemporary. I favor portraits, but since I'm not too good at it, I do landscape, waterscapes and skyscapes. I also love fantasy artwork, animals and still life.

A View of the Adirondack Mnts. by Sillybilly60Lake Loxahatchee by Sillybilly60

:bulletblue: 2 Why this kind of art ? /
:bulletblue: 3 When did You started create Your art?
Sillybilly60 - I started drawing when I was fairly young, mostly cartoons. My medium is pastels and oils, but have crossed over to digital. (Self-taught artwork)

Beyond The Road by Sillybilly60Dusk by Sillybilly60

:bulletblue: 4 What kind of art do You like to watch the most?
Sillybilly60 - I enjoy all kinds of creations, especially realistic work.

Flight Home by Sillybilly60Calm Waters by Sillybilly60

Sillybilly60 - My inspiration is all around me...nature and everyday "things'.
