Sher Richardson

Sher Richardson once ran the halls of Artwanted as free as any Spirit here.Her words were always positive,whether goofing with Friends in the boards,or being so Professionally Indepth in comments,Sher Appreciated Us for what We were...a Garden.We were the Flowers that Smiled back at Her.Hundreds out of Thousands at AW Loved Her.To Consider the word Inspiration with Her,was to Understand that a Woman had the Power to Unite Others.And in ONLY the most Positive of ways.Time has Carried on,and like many at AW,We Lost our Friend.Almost a Virtual Conscience of a two dimensional Imaginary World.Because of Sher,it was Real.It was True.And She stood out Front,as possibly the Strongest Character this Silly Site will Ever Know.Sher was My Big Sister of Creation. Long Live the Queen of Artwanted.And...May Her Wish of Creating Artists from Us little Flowers,be reflected in the Song Below..."Let Flowers Bloom,in Your Name"...I Think That's Us,Kids.Whatever You DO...do it Artistically.Beautifully.It is YOUR Story.And Most Important...Inspire Others.

I love the way you capture the smirk.

Wow Tim - this is really beautiful. Sher was one of the first people at this site to give me feedback about my work and I will never forget that. Actually I came here because I wanted to tell you how much I liked this drawing; but instead I found these warm sentiments about a most deserving human being. You are so lovingly remembered, Sher......

Lovely tribute to Sher - we all will never forget her.

David Holcombe 23 Mar 2011

The subject dominates the work. She has that seductive expression, a combination of attraction and danger. The rose and sword are beautiful, but have their cutting edge, so to speak. The hair, of course, is wonderful.

Trish Ellis 22 Mar 2011

Wow, this looks amazing! I gotta say that I always loved the way you drew hair and this piece is no exception!

Jeff Richardson 03 Jan 2011

Hi Tim, WOW... It is simply BEAUTIFUL !!! You captured something very special and it starts with the eye's... Your words are gentle and very touching. It was like seeing her image all new again. Yes it's now going on six years since she passed and at times it seems like yesterday. The ring on her middle index finger was a large gold and amber ring that she picked out and had told the kids that she would have liked to really have had it. So when Christmas came that year the kids and I snuck back to the store and bought it for her. This was one of the last pictures we had of her. She had taken it for a challenge that had been put out on AW. Her shirt had a medieval look to it and I love the way you created the image with the boots, belt and sword. You capture some very special things about her in this image. I love the rose in her other hand as well. I like your rendering of her hair too. Thanks for not giving up on this and for honoring her with such a beautiful image and words. I would love to buy a print from you when your ready. I also know of a few other images that artists were working on back in 2005 and remain hopeful that someday they will be completed as well. I only know to well how painful and draining it was to complete this partial healing. I love what you said about inspiration... what she wanted more than inspiration ... was to give inspiration to other artists to create and inspire and maybe ... just maybe ... it would spread like an infection. Just so you know... I have saved copies of every image that I could find that was created in Sher's memory... Very Beautiful Tim and Thank You Respectfully Jeff Richardson

Martha Miller 03 Jan 2011
