  1. 53 is too young to die – what a loss of a master painter. Lavender Bay blows me away – absolutely gorgeous work. Thanks for sharing Robert…

    • Actually he lived longer than he expected John. He stated he believed he would die at 48 years. Brett was heavy into drugs and died of an overdose. He somehow managed them well enough….. openly stating that they helped his art and that was why he took them. It did however destroy his personal life. Tragic hero might describe him.
