In Memoriam: Carol Rowan

When our bodies return to the earth the flowers that grow there signify eternity. Carol Rowan was a lover of flowers. She painted them endlessly, perhaps in anticipation of that eternity. The lives of her many students as well as her paintings testify to her impact on the world, which was great.

Everywhere she looked she saw beauty and in her art she captured beauty and shared it. While there are other reasons to paint, there are none better.

I feel privileged and honored to be able to have called Carol a colleague.
