The filter cut off Greg's attachment. Here's the text from Dan
Cupper's post on PRR-talk:


It's my sad duty to report the death, after a brief illness, of Ted
Rose, widely known railroad artist, of Santa Fe, N.M. He died on
Friday, July 26, after a bout with cancer that had attacked his
spinal fluid.

Born in 1940 in Milwaukee, Ted was an amazing talent who could coax
both mood and detail from opaque watercolor. Earlier this year, I was
elated when he kindly allowed me to use his painting, "Along the
Susquehanna," for the cover of my book on the history of Rockville

His 2000 Indiana University book "In the Traces: Railroad Paintings of
Ted Rose" contained 61 images, including some that showed PRR I1, M1,
and H9 steam engines. His painting "Pennsy Men" appeared in the May-
June 1987 issue of the now-departed Railway & Locomotive Preservation
magazine, showing a K4, I1, and J1 at Columbus, Ohio.

Ted was a member of the American Watercolor Society and the New Mexico
Watercolor Society. Besides railroad art, he also painted scenes that
captured roadside culture and grain elevators.

Cards may be sent to Ted's wife, Polly Rose, at Box 266, Santa Fe, NM
