I am so saddened to learn of the death of Darrell Hill . He was a great plein air painter and a true source of inspiration for me. He had such a unique style, and in spite of his success, was so humble. I never went to Hawaii without stopping in to visit him. RIP Darrell. You will live on in our memories always.
