SO sorry to hear of this. So glad that she is not in pain. I know she and Lisa are up there with Bob Ross designing fantastic skies, flowers and animals to be born in the coming years.
It's been a bit hard for me to come here. Lyne has been such a close friend for so long and it's hard to believe she's gone, but it is a comfort to know that she is now free from the suffering she has endured so long. I and my family will miss having her in our lives more than I can express. To all the folks here at HiveWire, may God bless and comfort you. Thank you all for the love you shared with Lyne through all these years.
I had a special bond with Lyne. In 2004 when I was searching to make 3D items I found Vista and bought my first textures for the V3 mermaid from her. At that time I remember I purchased the CD with textures on it for 5 Guilders and had to pay 27,50 by Union Express. During the years we met several times on internet and when I used her textures for the cat, she was very pleased. Not only Vista has lost a great artist, but also we, where she always had a advice when you asked her. I personaly see this message with tears in my eyes. May she rest in peace. I will worchip your CD for life.Sadly, I must report the loss of another of our fine artist & my treasured friend. I was notified by her family that Lyne passed away this morning. She is finally free of the pain that she had to endure for most of her life.
The following two paragraphs are taken from her website & are in her own words:
My Art History
It was my love of horses that got me started drawing as a child. I could not have a real horse back then, so I wrote stories of young girls with horses. I illustrated those stories with shaded pencil drawings. Later in life, I learned (self taught) how to do horse portraits in ink, pastels, and oils. I did horse portraits commercially for a while, along with horse photography, all free lance. Still later I was privileged to own real horses for a few years.
My love of horses and fantasy lead me into the fantasy art subjects - Centaurs, Mermaids, Dragons, as well as Carousel horses and animals. I sold my creations on stationery, notes, and in original coloring books, commercially, for years. When the profits no longer outweighed the expenses of the business, I gave it up. That turned out to be a real positive for me, because I could now devote all my energies to learning to work with more advanced computer systems, and graphic arts programs. My goal was to be able to enhance and expand on my 2D art images. Computers had opened up a whole new world for me, allowing me to expand into Sci Fi art, as well as innovative new styles of "still life" art.

From that point in her life Lyne started her on-line store, Vista Internet Products. When her health deteriorated, so that she was no longer able to work, she was forced to close her business. In recent years she decided to share the items that she had created for her store- FREE! There is a remarkable and extensive list of downloadable models on her website. These include her own textures for the HiveWire3D horse & cat, her own models of Kangaroos, goats, sheep, farm & wild pigs, Bighorn Sheep, Okapi, skunks, Giraffe, Elk family, cattle, moose, rabbits, chipmunk, squirrels & chickens. There are also morphs for other models. lynesfree (lynescreations.com)
