I just learned that CSUS art professor Irving Marcus
who taught me how to oil paint passed away on Tuesday, March 2, 2021, at the age of 91. Marcus was a key figure in the Sacramento Delta arts community, fostering crucial exchanges between Chicago, San Francisco, Davis, and Sacramento. A few years ago, I purchased one of his popular oil pastel paintings. Here we are at the Blue Line Arts Gallery in Roseville, 2015. What an incredible artist!
