I received word last night that James McLaughlin Way had died earlier that morning. He was a sweet man and a truly gifted artist. Karen and I had the privilege of meeting him on two occasions when he was living and showing his work here in Atlanta. We both considered it an honor to have had our work in the same gallery next to his. Whenever we had reason to go to the gallery, the first thing we would do when we arrived was to search the space for any new "James Way" paintings.
