    I didn't know he was only 54! I figured he was an old man.

    He was America's most-collected living artist. His paintings earned him the title "Painter of Light." The lights that he painted looked as if the paint itself was illuminating. Seeing his stuff in person is quite spectacular.

    I would do a Google image search if I were you. I'm sure Wikipedia has some stuff too.

    Same here, I didn't even realize he had died until today going through the news stories on AOL. They're now saying he drank himself to death.
