RIP Robert Burnell

There is a local artist that has been painting our area for years. Sadly, he passed away at the ripe old age of 91.

I am a fortunate owner of one of his paintings. It’s of the main downtown Suffolk, VA intersection at the turn of the 20th century. Since I work in Suffolk, I have it on the wall of my office.

I’m fortunate to have been giving this painting. I’ve seen other copies that are in terrible condition.
