Life on earth, Is far too short, But, the artist lives on eternally Through his images! Dee-Marie
Sad news arrived today - the passing of fellow Renderosity member, Derrick Thomas[better known within the Renderosity Community as blueranger]. Although Derrick was a new member to the Renderosity community, his photographs were appreciated by many, and enjoyed by all who viewed his works.
Derrick's photos showcased his passion for cars through his outstanding use of color and composition. His motorcross images revealed his adventurous side, his keen-eye for capturing just the right moment!

I second Deemarie's text: "Life on earth,
Is far too short,
But, the artist lives on eternally
Through his images!"
My thoughts go to Derrick's family and friends.
If we can remember him he is present always !

This type of news is always sad whether the person is known to you or not simply because the world looses someone and something that can never be replaced with each passing. My condolences to his family and friends. May warm and happy memories keep him close always.
