I'm sure all of us will be greatly saddened at the passing of Eve Hudson. We all admired the spirit with which she fought cancer, and the level of motivation that kept her painting at a rate some of us couldn't match even when fit and well.

Eve tackled a wide range of subjects with energy, flair and determination. I expect everyone will have paintings by Eve they particularly remember. In my case it's the wild seascapes which earned her a distinction at CCAD, her majestic pictures of Malham Cove and her dramatic portrayals of Darlington Station, one of which featured in our Spirit of Place Exhibition. Hopefully, the examples below will speak for themselves.
