The Thomas Maher Sunset
12 x 16 inches - Acrylic on canvas. The Thomas Maher Sunset. Framed. Free shipping in the USA. Ready to hang.
My dearest friend Thomas Maher (46) passed away on April 3rd. He was a Navy SEAL, a graduate of MIT, and a force of nature in all of his endeavors.
In 2010, I met Tom and we became instant friends. Steve Wisotzki introduced us. I had designed a cyber defense class for the Teams and Tom was instrumental in making that the first cyber defense class taught to them. From that moment on, Tom and I would talk two or three times a month. We spoke the Thursday before he passed. He wanted to buy ten of my books in the Kindle at once. Amazon was not letting him to do that, and we were laughing at the stupidity of technology.
He has been the only person with whom I felt my mind could run unleashed, in total intellectual mode, mixing metaphysical and surreal ideas, and then bringing them down to earth to make them a reality.
I miss him already so so much.
The transitions on this paintings are done on purpose to portray a part of Tom's life. He was kicked out the Naval Academy, and never did boot camp, however, he ended up being a super decorated Navy SEAL. He did not go to college, however, he graduated with honors from MIT MBA. There are many many more stories like this.
This is a sunset at Morro Bay, CA. I was heading there the last time I spoke with Tom. I did the painting while I was participating in a Zoom memorial with many friends and family members of the one and only Thomas Maher.
