Amazing man as well. I had lunch with him a number of years ago at his studio in St. Mary's where he showed me a number of paintings he wasn't happy with, some of which were really wonderful. He was burning them one by one as we ate. It was heart wrenching.

Very cool, Rob! I agree about the throughline from Colville to Christopher Pratt. I met him briefly a year or two ago when he had a show at a gallery in Yorkville.
