I was sad to hear that nature artist Charley Harper passed away on June 10. I had the pleasure to meet him and shake his hand at the Cape May Fall Weekend last year. I even bought a t-shirt with one of his prints on it. Mr. Harper is known for his unique, minimalist approach to his art. The creatures he depicts have a unique appearance and may appear strange at first, but are immediately recognizable when you look more closely. He was 84 years old.
