‘Artist over 60’ Robert Guthrie passes away

I was sad to learn this morning that Robert Guthrie, one of the 21 artists over 60 featured in our March issue, passed away July 3 at the age of 72. He was an incredibly talented
colored pencil artist who overcame cataracts to continue making art. He
had this to say in our March issue:

“In art there doesn’t seem to be any hard and fast rule that can’t be
broken. Every time I think I’ve learned one, someone comes along and
breaks it, and it works!”
