DeviantArt has lost a wonderful artist and friend today.  Nick Stone, aka Shedboy68, has passed away......

Nick I still cannot believe you are gone from us my friend.  So many of us escaped our daily lives to thrive in this artistic mecca, and you were the friend on the other side of the rainbow always waiting to support and encourage us.  You never held back the compliments or the cute sarcastic remarks that made up your unique and affectionate personality.  I don't even know where to begin to tell you how much I will miss you....every single day.  I know I was far from alone  looking forward to your cheery comments and out of this world stunning artwork.  You were a shining star......

I never got to meet you but you were a part of me and how much I have grown as an artist.  Please know you have touched so many, and a lot of hearts have broken today......including mine.  Rest in peace my friend until all of us join you and we can continue this artistic party in a much better place.....

United States
I am a retired professional wedding and portrait photographer, and now run both a wedding accessory and a photo restoration website. As you may be able to tell, I have 2 horses (this guy was only a year old for this shot....MUCH bigger now!!), and 6 dogs that are mostly rescues. An animal advocate to the core.....and am trying in include animals in my work as much as possible, especially those who are so misunderstood like pit bulls and wolves.

I have to laugh, although I would love to say that is the way I look now, I'd be lying!!  That picture was taken at least 20 yrs ago!!  So you know I don't look like that anymore, age is doing it's thing!!! But thank you so much for the compliment!  I have just one dog now, Pepper, who is a rescue dog too. Actually all my dogs have always been rescue dogs. Thanks again!!!

I know how you feel Cathy.....my avatar with my 1 year old horse....of whom is 7 years old now and MUCH bigger!....I would give anything to even look as I did then  lol  But hey.....we deserve to age gracefully :)

I never realized until the past few years how many dogs/puppies and cats/kittens die in shelters.  Now that I know I will never ever look for a pet anywhere else.....

I'm right there with you, so many poor animals with no love, I get an older dog too, because most want puppies. My dog now is 9 yrs old and we have had her for a year. She is such a wonderful. loving dog. My hope is to age gracefully, I know I'm aging, it's the graceful part I'm not sure about!!:)
