Sadly, Another Passing: Varnette P. Honeywood

I met this talented artist when I first moved to Los Angeles in 1982 at a street faire. I bought some of her work because I thought it was so sweetly unique. Her work was unassuming and straight forward. Her use of color was so very African. She will be missed but like all great artist, her work will live forever and a day.

  1. Oh this is SAD news. I used to help Varnette make her litho prints when I first came to LA. She and her sister were both enlightened. I'm sure of it. Their lovingness was an unmistakable vibration felt by all who spent time with them.

    she will be missed.
    Thanks for posting this news Rasheed.
