Peter Von Artens was a Master Painter & such a genuine "gentle" soul. He was a wonderful blessing to have had the pleasure to work with & touched our souls with his work. He lost the battle & fierce fight with Cancer that was discovered suddenly in 2003. He left remembrances in our hearts. I would like to introduce Peter Von Artens.
