Teresa, Teri, Faded Jeans passed away April, 11th... She was a much loved part of our community and she will be greatly missed. A fellow COLOURlover and friend let me know the sad news and I felt it appropriate to let you all know... but, most importantly to share a little of the amazing color love that she left behind with us.

A memorial service will be conducted on Saturday (May 3, 2008) at 2 p.m. at Carter-Trent Funeral Home, Kingsport with Ed Clevenger, minister officiating.
I believe in celebrating a life and what I will humbly attempt to do here is to celebrate the colors of her life that she shared with us. I did not have the pleasure of knowing her in the real world, but I appreciate her very much and feel so very honored and touched to have created a place for her to share her inspirations, passions and her heart... a place that will continue to share that and carry her love forward.
From Her Profile:
Color and light are two deities that are more like muses to me instead of the foundation basics that they are when one talks about artistic elements and principals. So, whether it's for my projects as a canvas-easel painter or for my pixelations in the field of computer graphics art, I hope to use this site to gather inspirations for new artsy projects as well as share some colorful (and colourful *s*) inspirations of my own.
~*Colors breathe life into the imagination, passion into the unseen*~
It breaks my heart that the only pattern she created was a tribute to me. (Darius' Dare) I'm not sure I deserve that honor, but I will cherish the pattern and the words she left me...
"Thank you Darius for creating a powerful resource that not only feeds the needs of those that create, work and play amongst colours but for also playing an important role by *awakening" those that never paused long enough to see the beauty of life via colours. Personally, I admire you for challenging others to remember that the best life has to offer happens when you appreciate your personal gifts and help others less fortunate. Thank you Darius!"
With all my heart, Thank you Teresa. You will be greatly missed.
