    I just got off the phone with "East Coast Artie", he just received a call from "Penny", it seems we lost Larry Watson this morning around 3am. A great artist & even greater friend! I'm sure the family could use your payers right now.

    It's strange how people you've never met can have a profound effect on you.He was a huge influence on my taste and style of paint.We've lost another great one....I'll include all in my prayers....Dave

    A truly visionary artist and a really nice guy.

    I had the chance to meet him not too long ago at an event in Long Beach, and I was really struck by how genuinely nice and down-to-earth he was.

    He'll be missed.

    RIP, Larry.

    So sad to hear. He was the coolest of the cool. His paint jobs are what inspires me to paint, paint, and paint some more.

    RIP Larry, you will be missed but your legend will live forever.
