In Memorium: A Fellow Portrait Artist, Ann McCoy

This post submitted by Odessa member, Edna Krueger:

Ann McCoy, a good friend of mine, passed away several weeks ago to cancer. She was a member of the Portrait Society of America. She did mostly portraits of children in watercolor but also some in oil. Her husband Charlie said she didn't renew her membership this year because she knew she was not going to be alive much longer. Ann was a beautiful lady inside & out. We both did portraits so we were competitors yet we felt comfortable with each other and we freely shared artistic info with the other. We always enjoyed the sharing & friendship. I'll miss her warm smile & positive attitude. Just thought the Portrait Society would like to know.  - Edna Krueger
