Bravo for Carlo!
Having known Carlo back in the early ’70s and having been chastised by him for laziness on my part for not painting and sculpting enough while attending a now-defunct art school in Portland, I quote Charles to me: “God blessed you with the talent to paint that you do not bother to use, while I who have not such talent must work and toil and paint endlessly to develop.”
His prolific, Picasso-like painting ethic that you cited in your great, well-researched article in May’s issue ["Carlo Pittore's last round?"] was really the heart and soul of randy and always hungry old Charles, who would clean out your fridge and try and climb into your bed if he could get away with it. Sadly, I didn’t know of his passing.
Bravo for immortalizing him for your readership.
