I am still discovering amazing artworks that Shaw made popping up in people's collections and out and about. It was so good to see Shaw at his recent opening at Feltspace, to enjoy the artworks and to experience the mass of genuine feelings going out to him from the crowd. I am a little out of the loop from the SA School of Art so don't always hear the news, Shaw must have passed away while I was still trying to find the right time to visit him at Mary Potter. I did have a dream perhaps about the time he died - I was with a group of people at a table when all of a sudden I felt this pleasurable feeling in my ear! I thought it was the woman I was sitting next to sticking her tongue in my ear - then turned to the person on the other side and it was Shaw - looking happy and well - so I told him how good he looked but he didn't reply and remained quiet. Shaw was so enthusiastic and supportive of so many artists work including my own and in my experience was just the right person at the right moment to bolster confidence. It was a privilege and a joy to work with Shaw.
Happy Trails Shaw, you won't be forgotten.

Bronwyn Hendry This is my brother, Shaw, touching the tip of Aoraki/Mount Cook when he came to visit us in New Zealand last year. It was a great time to remember. His observations on life were always interesting, accurate and understanding... He has been and continues to be an inspiration to me. Thanks for being a great big brother. All my love, now and always, Bronwyn

Sascha Holyoak By Rumi.....for Shaw...

'Today and yesterday and unfortunate tomorrow,

And the series of tomorrow allotted us surely

Dreams, dreaming dreamers dreaming reality

Time's twilight is closed down by the dawn of death

Tearing us from the illusion of each carping moment

Now that we cease to be dreamers dribbling small daily

Griefs and aches,
And enter laughing our keeping home.'

Rumi ~ Words of Paradise ~ Mathnavi IV ~ 3654

Farwell to a lovely, playful soul xx
