    So sad that those paintings are just going to sit there in those boxes, rotting away.
    If they don't want to sell them, give them to museums?

    Seems like kind of a waste to have all those paintings just sitting in boxes. Sell them - or give them away for people to enjoy.

    They should make a gallery or museum in his name and display his work. It will become a landmark for the city or town and great tourist attraction. And I'm suprised noone has honoured him in this manner. Also have a fund in his name for future artists...etc so people who come can donate or the entry fee 20% of it goes to his fund or something
