Carol Walske Memorial
December 13, 2004 marked a sad day as a talented artist and beautiful person lost her long fight with cancer. Carol Walske (cwalske on Renderosity) left behind family and many friends on this day, but her spirit will long stay with all those that she came in contact with.
Her long-time companion, Fern Marder wrote: " In her last few days, she was surrounded by family and friends and was, for the first time in many months, in no pain. I wish you all could have known her personally. Carol was the kind of person who touched the lives of everyone she met. Carol was an extraordinarily creative person. She did artwork in many media and was also a very fine writer. I knew Carol for more than 30 years. I remember well when she discovered fractal art and how excited she was by it and the fractal art community."
 
Her artwork truly conveys her joy of creation, and serves as a reminder of an artist whose passion extended beyond her art. Please take the time to visit her gallery. The Renderosity Community sends out our prayers and best wishes to her family and friends. She will truly be missed.

Carol used to drop into the UF List on occasion and give us the gift of one of her extraordinary images in Parameter form so that we could open it up and study the techniques that she used. We learned a great deal from her generosity.

It is a real and thoughtful feeling to see people remembered and recognized but not surprising in this virtual world of giving. This artist was a person that seemd to want to visualize the digital extreme in a traditional sense and did so very well. This instance is an important moment in that artists life and I am pleased that Renderosity sees it that way. We all gain so much from what another does in life and gives of themselves so it is important to recognize their loss as it is ours too. Maybe she is already working up a new composition in another existance have having the time of her new life. :)

I've exchanged messages with her many times, although, sadly, I can't say I knew her well. I will miss her, though, and her wonderful images. May God bless her family and friends who are suffering her loss on extremely personal levels.

I didn't know Carol very well; we exchanged a dozen or so messages over the years. I admired her work a great deal: she was an artist, not just a craftsman, and an inspiration. My thoughts are with her friends and family at this very sad time.

I didn't know Carol, but I still feel like yet another light has gone out in our community/extended family. The beautiful sentiments expressed by her partner brought tears to my eyes. Peace to her and all of Carol's loved ones.

I knew Carol only through her work, which was masterful. May she now be in a world as beautiful as the ones she created for others for so long.

I only had a few brief exchanges with Carol, she was always open and friendly, yet I find myself shocked and saddened at her passing, she will be deeply missed and my thoughts are with those who knew her better then I.

I am sorry to say that I did not know Carol, but her works are beautiful! I know she is in a better place, creating wonderful art with the elements of nature! We should look for her work....the next time we gaze at a sunset :)

My condolences go out to her family and friends at their loss and to the fractal community, for the loss of this fine artist.

Wow. I remember Carol and Fern from Star Trek and Star Wars fandom. Their names, anyway - I don't think I ever met them personally. I had no idea Carol was a member here at Rosity. She must have been a woman of many talents.

A lot of us never knew Carol in person or up close.
However thru her work we got to know what talent she had and how she shared them. Even though Carol is now with God we shall always have her spirit within all of us by admiring and remembering her work.
