This week, I’d like to dedicate our photo challenge to Beverly Furillo Madison, one of our most colorful members, who passed away earlier this week. Beverly had so many talents. She was a great photographer, with an eye for the unexpected, as well as a true original artist. Beverly’s paintings were just as bold and colorful as Beverly herself, and her artwork often showed a wicked sense of humor (we shared a fondness for creepy dolls, and had so much fun with the Uncanny Valley challenge).
For me, Beverly’s greatest talent was to reach out and make friends. Even though we never met in person, and live half a globe away, Beverly connected and learned me so much about being your true, colorful self. This is a lesson for which I’m very grateful, and which I will treasure.
On behalf of Steve, Jeanie and Eric, I wish Beverly’s family and friends strength and love in this sad time.
And of course, there’s is only one theme possible this week: bright, bold colors. Here are some of Beverly’s pictures and paintings to inspire you.
