People appreciation

On the stylish walls of the Huxables (TV’s “Bill Cosby Show) Varnette Honeywood’s vivid and joyful paintings were often featured.  This great African American artist died Sunday of cancer at the age of 59.  Bill Cosby believed Honeywood’s images of the black culture captured family love.  In Cosby’s words, “Her work had depth and storytelling.  She just knocked it out of the ballpark every time.”
