Ian Foster 25 August 1938 – 16 January 2014

After a long illness my father passed away in January this year.  I hope that perhaps somewhere now he is now able to enjoy his art and the abstract painting that he had been unable to pursue recently.

Deepest condolences.

I very much enjoyed seeing the pieces that your father would post here. He was a talented artist, and so generous in sharing his works with us.

My heartfelt condolences. I have enjoyed seeing Ian's work here on his blog. I'm sure he's now painting and photographing to his heart's content.

His art was an inspiration to older artists like myself. He must have had a wonderful life.

Any time a blog becomes quiet, there's always the concern that life has been disrupted for some reason or another, and there's always hope, that one is just busy, blogs usually are one of those time luxuries that get left off for other things...

I am so sorry for your loss, it was always a pleasure and inspiration to visit Ian's blog.

Your father was a lovely man and a wonderful artist. I consider myself fortunate to have known and exhibited with Ian. He was quite self deprecating and I genuinely think he did not realise how good his abstracts were. He once asked me to teach him to paint like I did (not quite so abstract); for the life of me I couldn't think of how to do this as his work was where I wanted to be myself. I eventually managed to convince him how much I admired his work as it was, but not until after a bit of unconvinced harrumphing on his part!
Many condolences to you and all Ian's family.
