Newfoundland artist David Tuck, 1953­-2015, died well before we were ready to say goodbye. As a tribute to David, his work and his unique view of life, artist friends from across the Atlantic region have been invited to create new artworks, in a variety of media, each one to incorporate some of David’s ashes. David always said that after he died he would like to be painted into a Masterpiece. His friends thought this would be a great salute to David and a way to say: “a part of you is still here with us.” Love you David, from all your friends.
