      Artist Reception: Edward Box

      Edward Box discovered his bliss in the most unusual way. After heart surgery in 2003, he went into a slump of sorts, having come face to face with his own mortality. So, his wife Moira suggested he take a watercolor class at the local high school, as he had been dabbling at drawing and making lovely mirrored window frames. There he discovered his long-lost talent and became a prolific and innovative watercolor artist. How much he enjoyed being compared to the Impressionist artists, especially Matisse. He loved that period and would take art books out of the library and study them. Edward Box painted beautiful watercolor paintings for more than 13 years. He also created greeting cards that he would give to family and friends for birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. His first “showing” was in 2005 — his painting “Leaving Town” was exhibited at the International Innovation Expo at PepsiCo Headquarters in Purchase, NY.
      But a real thrill came in December 2016, when his work was selected for the gallery at the Pearl River Library for the month of February 2017. How proud we all were of him! Edward framed all his paintings himself and with the help of his wife, arranged them all neatly in sturdy canvas bags ready to go.
      On January 13, 2017 Edward closed his eyes and woke up in Heaven. His art show went on as scheduled at the Pearl River Library in February and was a great success. He is missed beyond measure, but the legacy he has left to his wife, family, and friends is what keeps us all going. Our love for him lives on forever, and so do his beautiful watercolor paintings.
